Postgame notes following Austin Peay’s Ohio Valley Conference doubleheader sweep – 5-4 and 10-1 – of Jacksonville State, Friday:

  • Austin Peay improved to 19-3 overall – its best record after 22 games in program history.
  • The Govs improved to 4-0 in conference play – the second consecutive year it has won its first four conference games.
  • Austin Peay is assured of winning the series against Jacksonville State:
    • It is only the Govs third series victory (2004, 2011) against the Gamecocks – they have not swept a regular-season three-game series from JSU (nine series played all-time);
    • It is APSU’s fifth-straight OVC series victory, dating back to last season;
    • It is Austin Peay’s eighth consecutive series victory, dating back to last season.
  • Shortstop Reed Harper changed his walk out music back to Miley Cyrus’ Party in the U.S.A. – as he has the past two seasons – and broke out with a 5-for-9, two RBI outing.
  • First baseman Craig Massoni was held hitless in Game 1, but bounced back with his first four-hit outing as a Governor (and second by a Governor this season), going 4-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI in Game 2.
  • Center fielder Dylan Riner moved into the No. 2 spot in the lineup for the first time this season and was 3-for-7 with three walks – giving him a team best 19 walks at day’s end – and four runs scored.  He received the Govs only walk in Game 2.
  • Third baseman Kevin Corey moved into the No. 9 spot in the order and did not record a hit, but had an RBI ground out in Game 2.
  • Second baseman Jordan Hankins went 3-for-5 with two RBI in Game 2 and finished the day with four this and three RBI.
  • Game 1 designated hitter Brett Carlson got the Govs on the scoreboard first with his two-run single in the fourth inning.
  • Left fielder Cody Hudson finished the day 3-for-8 with two RBI and batting .395 this season.
  • Closer Tyler Rogers notched his 21st career save – and became APSU’s career saves leader – with a three-out stop in Game 1. It was his ninth save this season.
  • Game 1 starter Lee Ridenhour improved to 4-0, making it to the seventh inning for the fourth time in five appearances. He entered the day leading all OVC pitchers with 7.58 innings pitched per game.

  • Game 2 reliever Tommy Hager loaded the bases in the eighth, but escaped and ended the game with two scoreless innings pitched. He has not allowed a run in his last five appearances totaling eight innings.
  • The Govs offense recorded 12 strikeouts in Game 2 – the third time in their last six games they have posted a dozen strikeouts. They have 60 strikeouts in that span  (10 per game) after recording 105 strikeouts in the previous 14 games (7.5 per game).
  • Game 2 was a strikeout fest for both teams. Jacksonville State was charged with 11 strikeouts in the contest. The two teams combined for 23 strikeouts in the game.
  • Austin Peay head coach Gary McClure finished the day with 771 career wins and moved to six wins away from becoming the Ohio Valley Conference’s all-time wins leader.
