Austin Peay (21-17) jumped out early thanks to the long ball. Second baseman Logan Gray hit leadoff home runs in both the second and fourth innings.

In the fourth, his home run was followed by right fielder Josh Wilson‘s first collegiate home run to give the Govs a 3-0 lead.

Lipscomb (25-13) struck for six runs in the fifth inning, assisted largely by Austin Peay’s pitching. Starter Caleb Powell walked the four of the first five batters he faced to force in a run and left with the bases loaded.

APSU's Logan GrayLater in the inning, reliever Levi Primasing – the third pitcher of the frame – surrendered a two-run single to designated hitter Tyson Ashcraft then a two-run double to right fielder Allan Hooker, pushing the Lipscomb lead to 6-3.

Austin Peay would respond with two runs in its half of the fifth with Wilson again supplying a two-run single to narrow the deficit to 6-5. One inning later, Wilson’s sacrifice bunt helped the Govs manufacture the tying run on designated hitter Alex Robles‘ single.

That would be the final run Austin Peay would score as Lipscomb relievers Nick Andros and Jason Ziegler held it hitless over the final four innings. Ziegler would pick up the win after striking out the side in the 11th.

APSU's Alex RoblesLipscomb’s offense again exploded for six runs in the 11th inning, assisted by a pair of Austin Peay errors. Shortstop Grant Massey broke the tie with a two-run double and Ashcraft supplied two insurance runs with another double.
