Postgame notes following Austin Peay's 5-2 Ohio Valley Conference victory at Eastern Illinois, Saturday:

  • Austin Peay won its ninth consecutive game - the third longest win streak in program history and longest win streak since a school-record 11-game win streak in 1971.
  • The Govs improved to 17-2 overall - the best 19-game mark in program history (15-4 in 1996 the previous best).
  • Austin Peay improved to 4-0 in road games this season.
  • Austin Peay clinched the OVC series against Eastern Illinois - its first series victory in Charleston since 2004. The Govs have never swept a series in Charleston.
  • The Govs scored in the first inning for only the fifth time this season, but improved to 5-0 when doing so this season. They also improved to 11-0 when they score first.
  • APSU walked eight times in the game and has received 14 walks in the first two games of the series. The Govs have been issued 30 walks in this week's four games.
  • Closer Tyler Rogers tied Austin Peay's career saves mark with his 20th save - 8th this season - tying the record held by Daniel Tenholder (2007-09).
  • First baseman Craig Massoni recorded hits in his first three at-bats, Saturday, giving him a streak of six consecutive at-bats with a base hit. He finished the day 3-for-5.
  • Left fielder Cody Hudson saw his nine-game hit streak come to an end with an 0-for-3 performance, but batted in the Govs first run with a first-inning sacrifice fly.
  • Second baseman Jordan Hankins walked in the first inning - he has reached base safely in all 19 games - and finished the day 1-for-4 with two runs scored.
  • Catcher P.J. Torres drove in the eventual game-winning run with a RBI groundout in the fifth inning but was 0-for-3 officially with a walk.
  • Starter Casey Delgado scattered three hits over six innings - surrendering only two solo home runs. APSU's starting pitchers have recorded both wins this weekend - after recording only one win in the first seven games of the win streak.
  • Austin Peay head coach Gary McClure notched his 769th career victory with the win. He is eight wins away from becoming the Ohio Valley Conference's all-time wins leader.
  • It also was McClure's 314th Ohio Valley Conference win, extending his own record for conference victories.
