Seventh-ranked LaGrange upped its season record to 19-2 with an 11-1 non-conference win over Stevens Institute at Cleaveland Field in Williamson Stadium on Thursday.
Stevens (4-7-1) pulled within a run in the top of the fifth on Shaye Bartnick's RBI double off reliever Richie Post. LaGrange answered with four runs in the bottom of the inning, taking advantage of wild pitches, balks and an error by the Ducks.
Zach English started and allowed just a hit in four innings to raise his record to 3-0. Post followed with two innings, then Colin Barrett for two scorless innings and Austin Perez worked the ninth to close out the game.
The Panthers will host Averett in a USA South doubleheader Sunday beginning at 2 p.m. and a single game Monday at 1 p.m. The teams were originally scheduled to play two games Saturday and a the one game Sunday but the weekend forecast forced the changes.
