Big Bulldog inning dooms Governors

 

APSU Men’s Baseball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsAtlanta, GA – Austin Peay State University starting pitcher Jeremy Dobbs left in the third inning due to an injury and a normally stalwart bullpen suffered through a rough fourth inning in an 8-3 loss to Mississippi State, Saturday night, at Russ Chandler Stadium.

Dobbs, who battled a developing blister on his throwing hand from the game’s start, was in trouble quickly as three of the first four Mississippi State (36-23) batters reached base. Clean-up hitter Nick Vickerson plated the game’s first run with a double off the wall in right center. Dobbs would eventually end the inning with a fly out that left the bases loaded.

That much was evident as the Lady Govs took a 1-0 lead in the game’s first minute, after a foul inside the box set up a penalty kick by freshman Natalia Ariza.

Freshman Andy Quiceno, who finished with two assists, set up the next goal by freshman Tatiana Ariza only two minutes later. Quiceno’s cross was perfectly timed and Tatiana pushed it through. It would be Tatiana again in the 22nd minute – this time from Natalia – as she pulled the keeper out and scored it to the right.
