The opening contest went down to the final at bat for Austin Peay (6-11) with junior Christina Beam smacking a one-out single into center field, scoring senior Lauren de Castro from third base with the only run of the game.

The inning had opened with de Castro just missing her second home run of the year, as she blasted a 0-1 pitch off the left field fence for a double.

Christina BeamShe would advance to third on a wild pitch, but would still by standing there after a groundout by senior Kayla Davidson and back-to-back walks to sophomore Niya Sparks and freshman Christiana Gable to load the bases and set up Bean’s heroics.

Beam’s hit also made a winner of de Castro (4-4), who pitched the five-hit complete-game shutout – while striking out a season high eight Trojan hitters, while walking three.

Trevecca’s (8-5) best scoring chance came in the top of the fourth inning, when two walks and an infield single loaded the bases with one out, but de Castro got Jordan Griner on strikes and Heather Shuler to ground out to second base to end the threat.

Laurel BurroughsHaley Fagan (3-2) took the loss for Trevecca, giving up just three hits, but walked five and struck out six.

Game two looked like it was going to be a repeat of the opening game of the doubleheader, as both teams were still tied 0-0, as the Lady Govs headed into the bottom of the fifth inning.

But Austin Peay was able to take advantage of the only error committed in the twinbill to score three times in the fifth.

Freshman Rikki Arkansas led off the bottom the inning by hitting a groundball to Trojans third baseman Megan Chesney, who’s throw to first base, pulled first baseman Alex Richardson off the bag.

Arkansas would move into scoring position at second base on a ground out by Davidson, and then come around to score on a single to center field by junior Laurel Burroughs to make it 1-0.

Trevecca would get the second out of the inning, but then walked de Castro to bring up sophomore Mel Pavel.

Pavel, who leads the team in RBIs, came through again, as she ripped a double into center field scoring both Burroughs and de Castro to make it 3-0.

Mel PavelThose last two runs turned out to be huge, as the Trojans finally got on the scoreboard in the top of the seventh inning.

Shelby Andrews and Chesney opened up the seventh with back-to-back singles off Lady Govs starter Brianna Bartuccio (1-5) to get the tying run to the plate with no outs.

But Bartuccio got the next two Trevecca hitters to groundout, giving up a run to make it 3-1, and putting a runner on third base.

Ansley Brantley would then single in Chesney to make it 3-2, putting the tying run on first base.

Brianna BartuccioBrantley stole second base to get into scoring position, with walking to put the go-head runner on base.

But Bartuccio got Kelsey Kemp looking at a called third strike to end a 13-pitch at bat to end the game.

Bartuccio gave up six hits and two walks, while striking out three in picking up the victory; while Trojan starter Lindsey Stephens (2-2) got the loss.

Austin Peay returns to action on Monday, as they host Holy Cross in a doubleheader, with the first pitch scheduled for 1:00pm.
