Govs final OVC prep takes them to Western Kentucky, Tuesday

 

APSU Men’s Baseball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsBowling Green, KY – With Ohio Valley Conference play looming this weekend, Austin Peay’s baseball team has one last opportunity for some prep work when it travels to Western Kentucky for a 6:00pm, Tuesday contest at Nick Denes Field. The game was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but the forecast included a chance of rain so both teams agreed to move the game to Tuesday.

The Govs (9-9) are still seeking to end a recent slide that has covered the last eight games and seen them post a 2-6 record in that span. Austin Peay’s offense has been a particular concern, posting a .213 batting average and scoring just 3.0 runs per game in that span.
