APSU Men’s Baseball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay’s baseball team split a pair of one-run contests with Southeast Missouri – winning the opener, 6-5, before falling in the nightcap, 3-2 – in Ohio Valley Conference doubleheader action, Saturday at Raymond C. Hand Park.

Austin Peay (26-21, 14-5 OVC) won the series first game courtesy catcher Matt Wollenzin’s bases-loaded walk in the ninth inning. Southeast Missouri closer Logan Mahon (5-4) walked a batter and surrendered a pair of singles to load the bases. He prevented the winning run from scoring once as late substitute Blake Frazier hit into a fielder’s choice with first baseman John Hogan out at home. Mahon then battled back from a 3-0 deficit to a 3-2 count against Wollenzin but his full-count offering was low and away, pushing across the winning run.

Shortstop Reed Harper had three hits and three RBI in Saturday's doubleheader against Southeast Missouri, extending his hit streak to 25 games. (Austin Peay Sports Information)
