Postgame notes following Austin Peay's 5-3 Ohio Valley Conference victory against Belmont, Saturday:

  • The win snapped Austin Peay's three-game losing streak, both overall and in OVC play.
  • The Govs leveled the OVC series with Belmont, 1-1, with Sunday's contest upcoming.
  • Closer Tyler Rogers set APSU's single-season saves mark with his 13th save. It also was his 25th career save. The 17 days he went between saves was his longest such streak this season.
  • Head coach Gary McClure made several lineup changes prior to Saturday's outing. Jordan Hankins started at third base, his first start there since May 15, 2012 at Belmont. Tommy Hager started in left field, his second start on defense this season. Brett Carlson got the nod at second base, his first defensive start this season. Kevin Corey and Dylan Riner both did not start, but entered the game in the eighth inning as defensive replacements.
  • Tommy Hager made the most of his start, going 2-for-2 at the plate with a RBI single in the fourth and walked and scored the game-winning run in the sixth.
  • Right fielder Rolando Gautier bounced back from a rare hitless outing to post a 3-for-5 effort that included a pair of RBI doubles, including the game-tying RBI in the sixth.
  • Center fielder Cody Hudson had his season's first four-hit outing, going 4-for-4 with a double.
  • First baseman Craig Massoni extended his hit streak to six games (APSU's longest active streak) with a 1-for-4 outing.
  • Catcher P.J. Torres saw his five-game hit streak come to an end, but reached base safely for the 16th consecutive game as he was 0-for-1 with three walks and scored twice.
  • Starting pitcher Casey Delgado struck out nine batters over six innings. It is the third time in conference play he has struck out nine or more batters.
  • Delgado ended the second, third, fourth and sixth innings with strikeouts. He struck out the side in the sixth, but one batter reached on a wild pitch. Delgado would later pick that runner off second base to end the frame.
  • The Govs bullpen threw three scoreless innings in relief.
