LibertyFlames.com continues its countdown of the Top 10 Moments of 2013 for Liberty Athletics today, looking at No. 2, Justin Sizemore's two-run homer against Radford.

With a single swing of the bat, Justin Sizemore turned Liberty's Big South Baseball Championship experience from disappointing into the most memorable run in program history on May 23.

Down to their last out and facing elimination in front of their own fans at the new Liberty Baseball Stadium, the senior outfielder launched a two-run, ninth-inning homer that gave Liberty a 3-2 win over No. 4 seed Radford and rejuvenated Liberty's postseason lives.

The Flames followed with back-to-back wins over six-time defending Big South champion Coastal Carolina and a 2-1 victory over No. 1 seed Campbell to claim the program's fourth conference title. Liberty's magical postseason push continued at the NCAA Regionals where they advanced to the finals before falling to host South Carolina in Columbia, S.C.
