Liermann finished the day 3-for-3 at the plate, including a two-run homer, and a walk to finish the Chanticleer Showdown with 10 overall hits – five of which were home runs – and 10 RBIs.

Radford (6-9) would start the days scoring with a run in the top of the third inning, but Austin Peay responded with a Carly Mattson home run in the bottom of the frame.

Mattson would add a double later in the game to finish with two hits.

The Highlanders would retake the lead in the top of the fifth, 2-1, but APSU answered right back in the bottom of the frame with Liermann’s two-run homer to take its only lead of the game, 3-2.

But a Radford two-run triple that sliced just inside the line in right field in the sixth inning proved to be the difference maker, as the Highlanders retook the lead for good, 4-3.
