Metro roundup: ISU baseball routs Austin Peay 8-1

Nation’s longest winning streak halted at nine

TERRE HAUTE — Five pitchers for the Indiana State baseball team limited the visiting Austin Peay Governors to just two hits and one unearned run on a chilly Tuesday afternoon on Bob Warn Field at Sycamore Stadium, leading the Sycamores to an 8-1 victory.

ISU moved back above the .500 mark with the win, pushing their record to 8-7 for the season. Austin Peay dropped to 17-3 overall, seeing its nine-game winning streak — which was the longest in the nation — come to an end in Terre Haute.

APSU took the lead in the top of the second inning as Cody Hudson reached on a single before stealing second base. Hudson stole third later in the frame and scored when catcher Mike Fitzgerald’s throw to third went into left field.

Indiana State responded in the bottom half of the frame, scoring three runs to take a 3-1 lead. Robby Ort led off with a double to right-center, scoring two batters later when Owen Conway dropped a single over the first baseman and inside the right-field line. Derek Hannahs (sacrifice fly) and sophomore Landon Curry (single) each drove in runs later in the inning.

The Sycamores tacked on single runs in both the fifth and sixth, coming on a double by sCasey McCurdy in the fifth and a sacrifice fly by Koby Kraemer in the sixth.

Indiana State posted its second three-run inning in the bottom of the eighth, as McCurdy drew a bases loaded walk before Conway brought Kraemer and Fitzgerald home with a two-run single to left.

Tyler Fehringer (1-0) earned the win on the mound, allowing one hit and one unearned run over four innings with a career-high six strikeouts. Greg Kuhlman struck out two over the next two innings before Daniel Peterson, Kurt Kudrecki and Josh Dove each recorded one perfect inning. ISU’s pitchers combined to strike out 12 batters while allowing two hits and two walks.

At the plate, Conway led the way by going 3 for 3 with a double, two walks, one stolen base and three runs batted in. Curry went 3 for 4 with a double, stolen base and one RBI. McCurdy went 2 for 3 with a double and two RBIs.

Every Sycamore who played Tuesday either picked up a hit, scored a run or drove in a run.
