In Austin Peay’s lone victory last week, Powell tossed six innings of four-hit, one-run ball at Morehead State’s notoriously small Allen Field, leading the Govs to a series-salvaging 6-2 victory against the Eagles.

The Milan, Tennessee, native retired the side in the first and fourth innings and danced out of trouble with runners in scoring position in the second and sixth innings for his season’s fifth victory and second in as many week’s as the Governors No. 3 starter.
