The Lady Govs (9-5) entered the day having lost all 13 meetings between the two schools over the past 28 years on the softball diamond, but hammered Southern Illinois pitchers for 19 runs and 22 hits in the doubleheader.

In Game 1, Austin Peay (9-5) exploded for five runs in the second inning – started by an error by Southern Illinois – but ended on a grand slam.

Kayla Davidson reached on an error by Salukis pitcher Brittany Lang, who misplayed a come-backer.

Mel Pavel and Abby Guest sandwiched singled around an out to load the bases, with Amanda De Vries driving in the first run with a single.

Jessica RyanSouthern Illinois (10-11) got the second out of the inning, on a force at the plate, but Jessica Ryan followed with a blast over the center field fence for a grand slam homer and a 5-0 Lady Govs lead.

The two teams would trade runs in the fourth and fifth innings, with Austin Peay’s run in the fifth inning coming on Davidson’s first home run of the season.

Southern Illinois would get within two runs by scoring three times in the top of the sixth inning, but the Lady Govs responded with their second five-run inning of the game in the bottom of the frame.

Austin Peay would open up the inning by loading the bases, with no outs, with Niya Sparks drawing a walk, Guest singling – her third hit of the game – and De Vries being hit by a pitch.

Laurel BurroughsAn out later, Ryan cleared the bases with a double, making it 9-0.

Laurel Burroughs followed with a double, scoring Ryan, but also scored on the play when the throw back to the infield by Southern Illinois was off line and when into their dugout.

Southern Illinois would close out the opening game’s scoring with three runs in the seventh for the 11-7 final.

Austin Peay’s Lauren de Castro (5-2) got the complete-game win, despite giving up seven runs, six earned, while striking out two and walking four.

In Game 2, Austin Peay jumped on the Salukis with four runs on four hits in the first inning.

Marissa Lake opened the inning by reaching on an error, with Ryan following with a single.

SIU would get the next two Lady Govs out, but Davidson singled and Pavel drew a bases-loaded walk to force in the first run of the game.

That would open the flood gates, with Shelby Norton following with a two-run single and Guest with a run scoring base hit to make it 4-0.

Kayla Davidson

The Lady Govs would add to their lead with two more runs in the third inning on a two-run homer by Davidson – her second of the doubleheader.

Davidson had three hits in the nightcap, while Guest, Burroughs and de Castro had two hits each.

Southern Illinois would score singles runs in the fourth and fifth innings, but that would be a close as the Salukis would get.

Austin Peay closed out the game’s scoring with two more runs in the bottom of the sixth inning, the first on a RBI triple by Burroughs and a single by de Castro.

Austin Peay will return to action March 13th, as they host Lipscomb for a doubleheader, starting at 2 p.m.
