Clarksville, TN – Shortstop Bobby Head’s  two-run home run in the fifth inning put the Austin Peay State University (APSU) baseball team out front for good in a convincing 13-6 victory against Eastern Michigan, Sunday, on Joe Maynard Field at Raymond C. Hand Park.
Head’s 4-for-5, three RBI day led an Austin Peay State University (2-1) offensive attack that pounded out 18 hits in the series finale.
However, the APSU Govs could not fend off the Eagles through five and a half innings, entering the sixth tied 6-6.
Left fielder TJ Foreman  started the sixth with a single and, after a fielder’s choice, Head stepped up to the plate. He did not miss a 2-0 pitch, hitting the game’s lone home run to right center field, giving the Govs an 8-6 lead. Austin Peay State University would pull away late, tacking on a run in the eighth and four more in the ninth to secure the victory.
Govs reliever Kyle Nunn  (1-0) went four innings, allowing two runs on four hits to pick up the victory. Starter Tyler Thompson  was left with no decision despite limiting Eastern Michigan to four runs on six hits in his four innings of work. Reliever Greg Norman  retired the side in order in the ninth.
Center fielder Garrett Spain  posted his first hits of 2020 in the series finale, ending the day 3-for-4 with a double. Right fielder Skyler Luna  also had three hits and a RBI. Designated hitter Ty DeLancey  added two hits, including a bases-clearing triple in the fourth inning.
Second baseman Shane Easter went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and a RBI to pace the Eagles. Eastern Michigan (1-2) saw six different players contribute an RBI but did not score in the game’s final three innings.
EMU reliever Justin Reinkall (0-1) surrendered five runs on seven hits and suffered the loss despite striking out seven APSU hitters.
Austin Peay State University baseball continues its season-opening eight game homestand when it opens play in the SAF Dirt Classic with a 3:00pm, Thursday contest against Missouri State. The Governors will recognize alumnus Craig Massoni, who is battling cancer, prior to the start of Thursday’s contest.
