“Holden Reilly had another strong outing for us. It was nice to get Jack Nytes on the hill. He competed well and controlled the strike zone,” said Panther head coach Butch Cain.

“We made some fine plays on defense on the infield and in the outfield. We were able to push across two runs in the second and three in the fifth.”
