Davis' three-run shot lifts Austin Peay past Florida in Bloomington Regional
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Michael Davis hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift second-seeded Austin Peay to a 4-3 win versus third-seeded Florida in the first game of a Bloomington Regional game on Friday.
With runners on second and third and one out in the inning, Davis -- who was hitless entering the at-bat -- ripped a towering fly ball to left field that carried over the fence with the help of a strong wind.
It was the 16th consecutive win for the Governors (46-13).
Florida (29-29) led 3-1 in the sixth when Casey Turgeon and Taylor Gushue drew one-out walks from Zach Hall. Justin Shafer followed with a three-run homer off reliever Lee Ridenhour.
