Missouri pitcher Eric Anderson picked up a victory Sunday for the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team, which defeated the North Shore Navigators of the New England Collegiate Baseball League 4-1 in Lynn. Mass.

Anderson, an alternate who is trying to earn a permanent spot on Team USA, started for the first time Sunday after his scheduled Saturday night start was rained out. He pitched five scoreless innings, allowing three hits and striking out two batters.

After Anderson allowed a double and a walk to start the top of the first, he retired nine consecutive batters before allowing a hit in the fourth and fifth innings.

The Collegiate National Team, led by Missouri coach Tim Jamieson, is 3-0 thus far in play against NECBL opponents. The team’s summer is scheduled to end in a five-game series against the Japan Collegiate All-Stars, beginning July 3.
