Peyton Milene struck out 12 in five innings of work and he also delivered a double and an RBI in Century's 9-1 win over Austin. Josh Fletcher and Gavin Milene both had three hits for the Panthers.

"It was nice to see the bats stay hot," Century coach Todd Stellmaker said. "We've played really well these past couple of weeks. Our pitching has shown up and our bats have been alive. Add in that we've played solid defense and it's a good combo to have."

Teyghan Hovland fanned five for Austin but suffered the loss.
