Govs rally to down Crusaders in 11 innings

 

APSU Men’s Baseball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Left fielder Cody Hudson’s soft liner in the 11th inning sailed just high enough to get over the drawn-in infield and Austin Peay’s baseball team won a wild 11-10 non-conference tilt against Valparaiso, Saturday afternoon at Raymond C. Hand Park.

Trailing 7-4 entering the eighth, Austin Peay (2-0) showed that patience at the plate pays off. Valparaiso (0-2) used four pitchers in the inning and issued six walks to the 11 batters they faced. Consecutive bases-loaded walks issued to shortstop Reed Harper and first baseman John Hogan gave the Govs their first lead. Following the back-to-back walks, designated hitter Tyler Childress added to the lead as he ripped the first pitch he saw to left field, scoring two more runs and giving the Govs a 10-7 lead.
