Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) softball team closed out it’s six-game homestand by shutting out Green Bay, 2-0, Monday afternoon at Cathi Maynard Park-Cheryl Holt Field, as the Governors finished its longest homestand in over three years by winning five of the six contests.
The Governors (11-8) scored all its runs in the bottom of the third inning, with Lexi Osowski-Anderson reaching on a one-out double, her second double of the day, and score when Green Bay’s third baseman threw wildly to first base on a ground ball by Kylie Campbell.

Those two runs proved to be all the runs that the APSU Govs would need, as Samantha Miener and Ashley Martin combined for the five-hit shutout, with Martin (2-1) earning the win and Miener the save, her first of the season.
