Leading 9-6 after its half of the eighth inning, Austin Peay saw Morehead State score the game’s final four runs.

The Eagles struck for two runs in the eighth as second baseman Tyler Bigler drove in a run with a triple and then scored on right fielder Brandon Rawe’s single, cutting the deficit to one run.

Morehead State (24-21, 12-10 OVC) returned in the ninth and saw the first three men of the inning reach base, third baseman Jeff Birkofer delivering a walk-off two-run single.

Cayce BredlauAustin Peay (18-29, 10-12 OVC) grabbed a 6-4 lead thanks to a five-run fourth inning. The Govs sent 10 men to the plate in that inning with left fielder Cayce Bredlau delivering a two-run single to grab the two-run advantage.

The Govs nursed that lead over the next five innings. Morehead State scored a run in both the fifth and sixth innings, but that burst was matched by the Govs two-run sixth inning.

Austin Peay would tack on another run in the eighth to build a 9-6 advantage that it could not hold on to – its first loss when leading after eight innings this season.
