Perry said. Down by six runs entering the bottom of the fourth, Hood got Serra on the scoreboard with a two-run single. He finished the game by going 2-for-4 with four runs batted in. In the fifth, Henry Sorman hit a basesloaded triple that enabled the Cavaliers to pull away. Jeremy Smith also highlighted Serra by going 2-for-3 with three RBIs. Niguel Buckley and Jarren Sanderson also each had two hits. In a non-league doubleheader at Jurupa Hills in Fontana last Saturday, Serra split its two games; winning the first game 7-5 before falling in the nightcap 10-2. In the opener, Buckley went 3-for-4 including a home run, double and four RBIs. Harris, who was the winning pitcher for the Cavaliers in their league game against La Salle on March 15, picked up the save. Prinze had a good doubleheader by going a combined 4-for-6 that included four stolen bases. After hosting St. Paul last Tuesday, Serra will visit the Swordsmen in Santa Fe Springs Friday at
3:15 p.m. The Cavaliers will host La Puente Bishop Amat next Tuesday at the same time.
