Big Bulldog inning dooms Governors

 

APSU Men’s Baseball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsAtlanta, GA – Austin Peay State University starting pitcher Jeremy Dobbs left in the third inning due to an injury and a normally stalwart bullpen suffered through a rough fourth inning in an 8-3 loss to Mississippi State, Saturday night, at Russ Chandler Stadium.

Dobbs, who battled a developing blister on his throwing hand from the game’s start, was in trouble quickly as three of the first four Mississippi State (36-23) batters reached base. Clean-up hitter Nick Vickerson plated the game’s first run with a double off the wall in right center. Dobbs would eventually end the inning with a fly out that left the bases loaded.
