Daunders was called up to replace Ervin Santana, who was sent down to the minors on Wednesday. He allowed six hits and struck out five to improve to 4-and-oh as the Angels opened a two-game lead on hard-charging Seattle in the A-L West.
Anderson's solo shot in the third landed in the upper deck in right field for a 3-nothing L-A lead.
Matt Garza allowed four runs on seven hits in five-and-a-third innings to take the loss.
Jeff Cirillo had a double and an R-B-I and Justin Morneau added an R-B-I single for Minnesota's only runs.
