Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University (APSU) softball’s Black Team rallied from an early 2-0 deficit to defeat the Red Team 5-2, Tuesday afternoon at Cathi Maynard Park-Cheryl Holt Field, to force a winner takes all Game 3.
Raylon Roach would then give the Black Team the lead with a single, scoring Suites from third, making it 3-2.
That would be all the runs that Black Team starter Samantha Miener would need, as the freshman held the Red Team scoreless the rest of the way and finished the game giving up just two runs on four hits while striking out one and walking one.
The Black team did extend its lead in the fifth inning, scoring twice, aided by two Red Team errors.
The Red Team had opened the game with two quick runs, with Katie Keen collecting a one-out single then score all the way around from first on a throwing error by the Black Team on a ground ball off the bat of Emily Harkleroad, who then scored on a ground ball by Kylie Campbell.
