* Stahlhut Earns All-MVC Recognition

University of Evansville senior outfielder Jen Stahlhut has been named to the All-Missouri Valley Conference second-team for her standout performance this season.  This is the third consecutive year that Stahlhut has been tabbed as an all-conference selection and is the second year in a row that she has earned second-team accolades,

Stahlhut finished in the MVC's Top-15 in several categories, ranking fourth in doubles (13), seventh in triples (2), eighth in on base percentage (.430), 11th in batting average (.336), 12th in hits (51), and 13th in slugging percentage (.542). She also led the league with 17 walks in Valley play.

Leading Evansville in nearly every offensive category, Stahlhut racked up 14 multi-hit games in her senior season and blasted a team-high five home runs. The only Purple Ace to start and play all 54 games, Stahlhut ends her career ranked fourth at UE in games started (193/197), not missing a contest from 2009-2011.

A 2011 All-MVC preseason pick, Stahlhut wrapped up her career by claiming the third place spot on UE?s all-time list with 49 career doubles. She also ranks fourth in all-time total bases (285) and fifth in career slugging percentage (.445).

* Aces Sink Austin Peay

Leaping out to a 6-0 lead after two innings, the University of Evansville baseball team went on to top Austin Peay State University, 8-3, Wednesday night at Braun Stadium. With the non-conference victory, the Aces improved to 27-17 on the season, while the Governors fell to 25-20.

Seniors Greg Wallace and Cody Fick piloted the squad, as Wallace went 3-for-5 with three runs scored, and two runs batted in, and Fick went 2-for-5 with two hits, four RBI, including a two-run home run to kick start Evansville’s offense for the night. Jared Baehl, Eric Stamets, Chris Pearson, and Jake Mahon also recorded hits, as the Aces tagged APSU for eight runs on nine hits. Despite Austin Peay outhitting the Aces with 10 hits, UE ‘s defense was able to limit the damage to just three runs.

On staff day for both teams, sophomore Josh Biggs (5-0) earned the win, starting and throwing three innings, allowing no runs, two hits, two walks, and struck out three. Andy Cox took the loss for the Governors, giving up six runs, five hits, two walks, while striking out two in one and a third innings. Both pitching staffs were able to get a lot of work in as UE tossed five hurlers and Austin Peay threw seven.

In the bottom of the first, Wallace singled through the right side, setting up Fick’s two run blast over the left field wall, his ninth of the season, for a 2-0 head start.

With one out in the second, Pearson singled to left and Cox beaned Mahon and Stamets, consecutively, to load the bases. Wallace took advantage, ripping a double and scoring two runs. Fick followed with a single to right field that also plated two, giving UE a 6-0 lead.

Austin Peay responded in the fourth with a single run off reliever James Kohler, as Reed Harper doubled to lead off and scored on a sacrifice fly.

However, the Aces one-upped  APSU with two runs in the bottom of the frame when Wallace led off with a single and junior Trentt Copeland walked to reach base and scored on a ball off the bat of Ryan Oesterle that was fumbled by right fielder Rolando Gautier, giving Evansville a 8-1 advantage.

From there, Austin Peay’s pitching staff settled down, holding Evansville scoreless the rest of the way with a different hurler every inning. Offensively, the Governors scored a run in the sixth on John Hogan’s leadoff home run off reliever Jake Naumann. APSU attempted a ninth inning rally with a leadoff double and RBI double with two outs, but that was as close as they would get as closer Tyler Miller finished it out.

The Aces are home for just one more series this season, hosting Missouri Valley Conference foe Creighton Friday through Sunday for three games. Game one starts at 6 p.m. Friday.
