The Governors return to action looking to rebound from losing an Ohio Valley Conference-opening series to Murray State last weekend.

Austin Peay State University’s Clarksville-trio of Skyler Luna, Gino Avros and Garrett Spain led the way offensively, each batting .364 or better and combining for nine extra base hits (8 doubles and a home run).

Lipscomb has opened 2020 impressively, winning its first six games before taking a series from Ohio State and challenging No. 25 Alabama before settling on one win in the three-game series. The Bisons are scoring just 5.2 runs per game but have made that work thanks to a pitching staff boasting a 4.70 ERA.
