Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay Baseball begins a four-game road trip when it visits Memphis for a 4:00pm, Wednesday contest at FedEx Field. The Governors will look to bounce back following a disappointing 10-1 loss to Illinois State, Sunday, that was the only blemish on a 3-1 start to their season.

Memphis will seek a measure of revenge against the Ohio Valley Conference after dropping 2-of-3 to OVC member SIU Edwardsville, last weekend. Austin Peay will turn to junior right-hander Casey Delgado, just four days after his previous start. Memphis will turn to junior left-hander Michael Wills, who made a relief appearance last weekend, in an attempt to stymie the Govs.

Clarksville, TN – In an update to a story reported earlier at Clarksville Online, it’s been learned that a class-action lawsuit has not been filed on behalf of Clarksville Tennessee area businesses who were affected by the 2010 flooding.  Those interested in filing a claim against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will get the opportunity to meet with the law firm of Bass Berry and Sims this Friday morning to understand the procedure of filing that claim.

According to a representative at the Nashville law firm, the statute of limitations will expire in April 2012 for anyone to file a claim related to the 2010 floods that devastated much of the Middle Tennessee area, including Clarksville.
