The Austin Peay State University (20-9, 15-7 OVC) got on the board first, in the bottom of the second inning, scoring twice, with Brett Jackson driving in Drew Dudley with a double followed by Jackson scoring on a single by Kendyl Weinzapfel.

APSU would add two more runs in the third, the first coming on an RBI single by Kelsey Gross, that brought in Bailey Shorter, and Dudley forcing in Lexi Osowski when she was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded.

The score would remain that way until the top of the fifth, when the Gamecocks (13-18, 11-9 OVC) took advantage of a walk and a hit batter before giving up a home run to make it, 4-3.

JSU would tie the game, 4-4, in the sixth against Govs starter Jordan Benefiel, who was lifted for Gross, who got the final out of the inning.

Both teams failed to score over the next two innings, but Jacksonville State hit two home runs for Gross (7-2) in the ninth for the final margin in the 7-4 final margin.
