Right-handed pitcher Peter Lambert of San Dimas is among the 20 players named to USA Baseball’s Under-18 National team.

The announcement came after a six-day trial in Houston, Tex. The team will defend its consecutive gold medals (2012-2013) and attempt to win three straight for the first time in U.S. history.

Team USA could become the only team beside Cuba (1984-1987) to win more than two in a row.

The initial 40-man roster for the trials was divided into two squads for five games and six days of workouts at the University of Houston’s Cougar Field.

Lambert was an All-CIF and Inland Valley selection last year for the Saints.
