The Lady Govs were also defeated by McNeese State earlier on Saturday, 16-1, in five innings.

Austin Peay (1-3) took an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning against UAB, the 25th ranked team in the ESPN.COM/USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 Poll, with senior Kayla Davidson drawing a walk to open the game, move to third on a two-out single by senior Lauren de Castro and score on a single by sophomore Mel Pavel.

The score would remain that way until the bottom of the fourth inning, when the Blazers (1-2) loaded the bases with one out on two singles and a base on balls.

UAB would tie the game 1-1 when de Castro, the Lady Govs starting pitcher, would then hit Amy Dennis to force in a run.

The Blazers would take the lead for good, 2-1 on a two-out infield single by Anna Theriot in the fifth inning.

Austin Peay threaten to tie, or retake the lead in the top of the sixth, with Davidson earning a walk to open the inning and move around to third base on an one-out double to center field by fifth-year senior Kristin Whitmire.

But the Lady Govs couldn’t push a run across, with de Castro following with a pop-up to short stop and Pavel striking out swinging.

UAB would tack on two insurance runs in the bottom of the six inning for the 4-1 final.

In Game 1 on Saturday, the Lady Govs were taken out of the game in the first inning against McNeese State (2-1), as the Cowgirls sent 16 batters to the plate in scoring 12 runs on 10 hits.

Austin Peay would score its’ lone run in the bottom of the inning on an RBI single by Pavel that drove in Whitmire – who had also singled.

The only other hit in the game was a third-inning double by de Castro.

Austin Peay concludes play in the invitational today versus the invitational host No. 22-ranked South Alabama at 12:15pm.
