"We showed our potential," head coach Derrick Goblirsch said.
Central Valley snapped a six-game losing streak with an 11-3 win at Patterson on April 24.
"We finally got a couple timely hits," Goblirsch said. "Our pitchers threw strikes. And we played good defense behind them."
Hawk Robert Garcia (2-2) gave up two runs and five hits with seven strikeouts and two walks over 52/3 innings.
"He pitched with confidence," Goblirsch said. "He pounded the strike zone."

Fourth-place Central Valley dropped to 7-16-1 on the year and 1-7 in the WAC standings after losing 5-4 to Patterson on Thursday in Ceres.
The Hawks stranded the tying runner on base in the bottom of the seventh inning versus the Tigers (10-15, 4-4).

Alex Solis totaled three strikeouts and two walks in 21/3 innings of relief.
The Hawks made three errors.
"He (Anaya) battled through some tough situations," Goblirsch said. "It could have been worse. He did a good job of keeping us right there."

"We got a little momentum," Goblirsch said. "We want to end the season on a high note."
