Instant Peay Play: Former APSU Baseball Gov seeing career resurgence in return to West Coast

 

Instant Peay Play - APSU SportsClarksville, TN – For the better part of nine seasons former Austin Peay State University (APSU) Athletics Hall of Fame member A.J. Ellis was a key cog behind the plate for the Los Angeles Dodgers, but a trade to the Philadelphia Phillies in 2016 followed by a season with the Miami Marlins seemed to signal that the end of his career could be right around the corner.

But the former four-time All-Ohio Valley Conference First-Team member has seen a resurrection to his career with a return to the west coast in 2018 as a member of the San Diego Padres.

Nashville Sounds fall at El Paso Chihuahuas 5-2

It was the theme of the night for Nashville as they left 11 runners on base in the setback.

It looked promising early as Colin Walsh gave the Sounds a 1-0 lead in the second inning when he belted a solo homer off Chihuahuas’ (54-40) starter Michael Kelly.
