Football Governors to scrimmage for first time Monday

 

Austin Peay State University GovernorsAustin Peay State University’s football team will scrimmage for the first time 9:00am, Monday, seeking answers in some critical areas.

“Monday is going to be an important evaluation period,” Christophel said. “First thing is we need to make sure we have our guys in the right places. We have a lot of young kids and we have to make sure all of the young personnel are in the right places so we can get them enough reps to help them be prepared to play in the first game.

“We have two areas, the secondary for sure and the backups in the offensive line, where we are going to be counting on freshmen to play. I looked out there the other day and all four or five that I saw out there on the offensive line were true freshmen. I am excited about the fact they are good enough to be backups, but it also is scary they may have to play some.”

Sounds Lose Third Straight Game To Bees, 5-4

 

Almonte Goes 5-for-5 For Nashville In Losing Effort

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds suffered their third consecutive loss to the visiting Salt Lake Bees, falling 5-4 on Sunday evening at historic Greer Stadium.

Right fielder Brendan Katin spotted the Sounds their first lead of the series in the bottom of the second inning when he belted his 16th home run of the year, a two-run shot to left-center off Salt Lake right-hander Fernando Rodriguez.

Erick Almonte, who doubled to lead off the frame, also scored on the blast. The Sounds’ designated hitter went 5-for-5 in the game and has recorded hits in each of his last seven plate appearances. Almonte’s five hits were the most by a Sounds player in a single game since Alcides Escobar recorded five on July 25th, 2009 at Oklahoma City.

Nashville increased its lead to 3-0 in the third when Mat Gamel drew a two-out walk, moved to third on an Almonte single, and scored when Joe Koshansky struck out but the ball bounded to the backstop for a wild pitch. «Read the rest of this article»
