It was the Lady Govs (1-8) pitching and defense that seemed to show the most tarnish from the inactivity, giving up 35 hits in the two games – including 12 for extra bases – while defensively committing four errors.

Offensively, Austin Peay fared better in scoring 10 runs on the day, coming on 16 hits, including five home runs.

In the opening game versus Appalachian State, the Lady Govs were down 4-0 heading into the bottom of the second inning before getting on the board on a solo home run by Niya Sparks.

APSU's Laurel BurroughsThe Mountaineers would score three more times in the top of the third inning, to go up 7-1, followed by the Lady Govs second home run of the game – this time coming from Laurel Burroughs – to make it 7-2.

Austin Peay would add a run in the bottom of the fourth inning, without benefit of a hit, with Mel Pavel driving in Chandler Groves with a sacrifice fly to center field to get cut the margin to 7-3.

But Appalachian State (8-7) answered back in the top of the next inning with four runs to push its lead back out to eight runs, 11-3.

APSU's Christiana GableSavannah Oliver would come off the bench to hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning – the only home run hit in the game by the Lady Govs not to be a solo shot – to make it 11-5.

The Mountaineers would close out their scoring with two more runs in the top of the seventh to go up eight runs, with Austin Peay recording its final two home runs of the game – coming on back-to-back solo blasts from Christiana Gable and Sidney Hooper for the 13-7 final.

In the nightcap, Austin Peay was trailing Winthrop 1-0 heading into the top of the third inning, when Sparks tied the game with an RBI single – driving in Gable, who reached on a double.

APSU's Mel PavelBut the Eagles (8-9) took the lead for good in the bottom of the inning with three runs, going up 4-1.

Austin Peay would try to rally back by scoring two times in the top of the fourth inning, on a two-run single by Gable, to make it a one-run game, 4-3.

But that would be as close as the Lady Govs would get, with the Eagles closing out the game by scoring the final seven runs for the 11-3 final.

The Lady Govs will conclude their stay at the Winthrop Adidas Tournament on Sunday, March 1st, with a 9:00am, game versus Coppin State followed by a contest against Wagner at 11:00am.
