The Govs best scoring opportunity came when they loaded the bases with no outs in the third. Yet they managed one run – courtesy left field Rolando Gautier’s RBI single – before Baylor starter Brad Kuntz struck out the side.

On the mound, the Govs could not consistent solve the Baylor attack.

Starting pitcher Alex Robles was tagged for three runs in the first inning and surrendered a fourth run in the second inning. It is the fourth straight game APSU has given up runs in the opening frame and ultimately they fell to 1-3 in those contests.

Robles settled in and held Baylor scoreless in the third and fourth innings. He started the fifth with a ground out before surrendering back-to-back singles which forced him from the mound.

Baylor (4-2) feasted on the Govs bullpen, eventually scoring a run in the fifth inning. However, they tagged on two runs in the sixth and put together an eight-run seventh inning to put the game out of reach.

The Bears finished with 20 hits as each of its starting nine posted a multi-hit outing and seven of the nine starters posted an RBI.

First baseman Mitch Price and designated hitter Grayson Porter each had three hits. Shortstop Lawton Langford had two hits and a team-best three RBI.

Austin Peay finished with four hits. Second baseman Kevin Corey had a pair of hits to pace the Govs. Gautier and first baseman Matt Wollenzin each had a hit.

Robles (0-1) suffered the loss after allowing five runs on 11 hits in 4.1 innings.

Kuntz (1-0) picked up the victory after allowing one unearned run in six innings while striking out seven.

Austin Peay will seek to salvage the final contest of the series, a 1:05pm, Sunday affair.
