RADFORD, Va. -- Radford (32-21, 17-10) surpassed the school record for wins in a season Saturday with a Senior Day triumph against No. 21 Liberty (39-14, 23-3) at RU Baseball Stadium.

With the win, the Highlanders take the series against the rival Flames.

Josh Reavis gave the Highlanders the lead in the first with an opposite field solo home run, his second of the season. Reavis finished the day 2-4 as the only RU player to record a multi-hit game. Radford tallied only four hits on the afternoon, but made the most of scoring opportunities and took advantage of Liberty defensive miscues. Lee and Hunter Higgerson each recorded a base hit in the win.

Radford pushed the lead to 3-0 in the third when Patrick Marshall walked with the bases loaded, and Lee grounded out to plate another run. That was all the RU pitching staff would need. Making just his third career start, Austin Ross threw 4.0 scoreless innings and gave up just three hits. He did not qualify for the win, but turned the game over to Kyle Palmer (1-0), who earned the victory in 2.0 innings of relief work. The Flames scored both runs off Palmer, including a solo home run by Ashton Perritt.

Liberty cut the lead to 3-2 in the sixth. Andrew Yacyk led off with a pinch-hit double and eventually scored on a wild pitch. Woods and Nygeal Andrews held the Flames scoreless for a combined 1.2 innings after Palmer to set up Ryan Meisinger for his fifth save.

Meisinger recorded the final out of the eighth, received an unearned insurance run from the offense in the bottom half, and then worked a perfect ninth to seal the victory.

Parker Bean (7-2) took the loss for LU. He gave up three runs on three hits in 3.1 innings. He walked four and struck out four.

Radford's 32nd win breaks the mark set by the 2011 squad.
