Missouri baseball loses to San Francisco to start weekend series

Friday, February 24, 2012 | 10:06 p.m. CST

Despite a strong performance from pitcher Eric Anderson, the Missouri baseball team lost 3-1 to San Francisco on Friday afternoon in the first of three games against the Dons this weekend.

Missouri (2-2) tallied only two hits against preseason All-American Kyle Zimmer, but Anderson was able to keep up with the potential first-round MLB draft pick.

The Tigers starter pitched 7 1/3 innings, allowing just seven hits and one walk. He struck out five batters but gave up two earned runs, the second being an inherited run given up by relief pitcher Blake Holovach during an eighth inning San Francisco rally that broke up a 1-1 tie.

That run was enough for the Dons' relief pitchers to seal the victory. Missouri's Brannon Champagne did notch one of Missouri's hits, giving him a hit in every game so far this season.

Missouri's Rob Zastryzny faces San Francisco's Abe Bobb at 3 p.m. on Saturday in San Francisco.
