Mooneyham wins for USA Collegiate National baseball team

 

Stanford junior Brett Mooneyham pitched a predetermined three innings and was rewarded with his second win, against no losses, of the summer as the United States Collegiate National Team downed Taipei County, 9-1, in an exhibition baseball game in Taiwan Wednesday.

Mooneyham allowed a run on two hits and struck out four as the U.S. split four games before heading for the world championships.

Brad Miller and Ryan Wright each had three hits while Jackie Bradley had two hits and drive in three runs for the Americans.

Team USA will close its summer season at the FISU World University Championships in Tokyo, Japan, July 30-Aug. 7.

The U.S., which opens with Sri Lanka on Friday, July 30 at 1 a.m. has won the past three FISU Worlds (2004, 2006, 2008), while host nation Japan will be looking for its first title.
