Baseball: Serra Catholic wraps up outright section title

Written by Brad Everett on .

If the Serra Catholic Eagles were any superhero Monday, they would have been The Avengers.

After all, they avenged their only section loss of the season and clinched the outright section title.

Only Brentwood had defeated Serra in Class 2A Section 3 play. The Spartans defeated Serra, 5-1, on April 25. However, Serra got some payback Monday by using a four-run first inning to roll to a 13-0 win against the visiting Spartans. Both teams are ranked in 2A: Brentwood is ranked No. 2. and Serra Catholic is No. 3.

With the win, Serra -- last year's WPIAL Class 1A champion -- claimed the section title all to itself. The Eagles (17-1 overall) finished 13-1, while Brentwood (12-2) fell to 11-2. Brentwood hosts Carlynton in its section finale today. The Spartans suffered their only other section loss to Carlynton, 3-2, on April 19.
