Austin Peay State University GovernorsEdwardsville, IL – For the second straight game Austin Peay State University’s baseball team relied on a simple formula – score in bunches and get a solid pitching outing to back it up – to post a 6-2 Ohio Valley Conference victory against SIU Edwardsville, Saturday, at Simmons Baseball Complex.

Austin Peay (28-17, 14-5 OVC) scored five unanswered runs in the second and third innings. Third baseman Greg Bachman and second baseman Jordan Hankins each had two-run home runs, in the second and third innings respectively, to boost the Govs offense.

The Govs defense had an up and down outing with a few outstanding plays helping to out-balance a trio of miscues. However, it was a fourth inning triple play that will stand out in the contest.

Govs starter Ryan Quick got into trouble after allowing a leadoff single and saw the following batter reach on an infield error. However, the defense nullified the miscue when SIUE right fielder Devin Caldwell chopped the ball to Bachman who stepped on third to start the play. He then threw to Hankins for the out at second then a relay throw to first baseman Tyler Childress to complete the triple play – the first in Austin Peay’s recorded history.

Quick (5-2) showed a return to his early season form allowing only two sixth-inning runs in a seven-inning outing that saw him scatter six hits. Closer Tyler Rogers recorded the final five outs to record his season’s ninth save.

Shortstop Reed Harper, catcher Matt Wollenzin, left fielder Cody Hudson and Hankins each had two hits to lead a 12-hit outing for the Govs.

SIUE starter Travis Felax suffered the loss after allowing five runs on 11 hits over 6.1 innings, despite striking out seven Austin Peay hitters. Caldwell, despite hitting into the triple play, led the Cougars offense with a 1-for-4, two RBI performance.

Austin Peay and SIU Edwardsville will close out their three-game OVC series with a 1:00pm, Sunday contest.
