Central put two base runners on with errors, and Taylor Stevens won it with a base hit.
Camden Smith was the tough-luck loser for LaGrange.
Smith held Central to six hits and two earned runs, and she had five strikeouts.
Smith also got it done at the plate with an RBI single to cap the two-run sixth inning.
