San Francisco, CA ( - Colorado Rockies left-hander Brett Anderson left Saturday's start against the San Francisco Giants in the bottom of the fourth inning with a left index finger contusion.

Anderson allowed just one hit over the first three frames, but appeared to injure his throwing hand after grounding out to end the top of the fourth.

After shaking out his hand in the dugout, Anderson went back to the mound, but the 26-year-old southpaw was unable to begin the home half of the inning, as the training staff came out to check on the injury.

With Anderson unable to continue, right-hander Tommy Kahnle took over on the mound for the Rockies.
