COLUMBIA — Missouri senior pitcher/outfielder Eric Anderson was named Southeastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday.

Anderson factored heavily into the Tigers' midweek win against Missouri State and their series win at Kentucky. He had two hits in Missouri's win against the Bears and a pair of three-hit games against the Wildcats. His three-run home run in the eighth inning of the Tigers' win Friday spurred them from a 5-7 deficit to 8-7 victory.

The right-hander also boosted Missouri with his performance on the mound. He struck out 10 batters in seven innings on Sunday to claim the win and help the Tigers take two of three games for a road series victory. 

Anderson is the first Missouri player in 2014 to win Player of the Week. The previous Tiger to take the award was Keaton Steele in April 2013.

The Tigers play Missouri State on Tuesday at Hammons Field in Springfield, then return to Columbia for a three-game conference series against Mississippi State.
