Southern University called Austin Peay (5-20, 1-7 OVC) head coach Casey Dickson early Friday morning and told her due to the rain forecast for middle Tennessee during most of the weekend, it didn’t seem prudent from a financial standpoint to come north and be unable to play or play a limited schedule.

APSU Men’s Baseball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsMurray, KY – Austin Peay’s baseball team opens the 2011 Ohio Valley Conference regular-season race when it travels to Murray State for a three-game series, Saturday-Sunday, at Reagan Field. The Govs and Thoroughbreds get the conference race underway with a 1:00pm, Saturday doubleheader followed by a 1:00pm, Sunday contest.

The Govs (9-10) still are seeking to end a recent slide that has covered the last nine games and seen them post a 2-7 record in that span. Austin Peay’s offense has been a particular concern, posting a .212 batting average and scoring just 2.9 runs per game in that span. The Govs pitching staff has stayed the course during the swoon – hovering around its season average in ERA while actually lowering the number of walks it has issued (4.85 per nine innings during the stretch).
