The Tennessee baseball team concludes its four-game, season-opening home stand Tuesday afternoon when it hosts the Austin Peay Governors. First pitch is set for 3 p.m., and the game marks UT's first midweek contest of the season.

Still 2-0, bottom of the 5th but Vols have runners on.

Losing 5-3 to the Govners....can't be good. Vols are going to have to win games like this one to have a solid season.

Seems like hitting let us down today. Good thing about that is usually when the weather warms so does hitting. Can't have bases loaded and not get anyone in.

We've really struggled to win these midweek games over the last few years.

I was at the game and that's probably the worst effort I've ever seen put forth from our team. It didn't look like the players even cared to be playing. Our offense looks awful right now...we haven't scored more than 5 runs in a game this year yet. Our cleanup hitter Hawn can't knock in runners in scoring position, popping out to shallow center with runners on 2nd and 3rd 1 out and grounding into a double play with the bases loaded 1 out. The other new guy Horne hits soft ground balls about every time he bats and is in the 5 hole. I hope Raleigh's assumption that Hawn helps KD works out because right now it's not. He gets pitched around a ton and today Hawn failed miserably in big situations. I realize we're only 3 games through, but the midweek plague seems to have not gone away. It's almost as if we don't care about the games and it's like we don't even expect to win them.

Austin Peay was 0-4 after a 4 game sweep against LAMAR, and we just got owned by them. Absolutely pathetic in my opinion!

Good post. It's only one game, but it's definitely concerning. It will be interesting to see how they fare this weekend in Myrtle Beach.
