Will Wagner paced Liberty at the plate, going 2-for-4 with a run scored and a RBI, while Jaylen Guy was 1-for-3 and drove in three runs.

Winners of seven straight contests, Liberty moves to 9-5 overall and 2-0 in ASUN Conference action. North Alabama falls to 1-11 overall and 0-2 in ASUN play.

The Flames and the Lions will wrap up their opening ASUN Conference series of the year on Sunday. First pitch is set for 1 p.m. from Worthington Field at Liberty Baseball Stadium.
