BERKELEY, CA -

Arizona registered as many home runs, three, as Cal had hits as Arizona defeated California 7-2 Sunday to take the series from the Bears at Levine-Fricke Field.

Chelsea Goodacre, Katiyana Mauga and Mo Mercado hit home runs as the ninth-ranked Wildcats (34-9, 9-6 Pac-12) put up seven runs on 10 hits in the contest.

Estela Piñon tossed the complete-game three-hitter to improve to 13-5 on the season. The senior struck out four and walked five in the outing.

Mercado went 3-for-4 at the plate including a solo homer and two-RBI single. Goodacre added a pair of hits in the game, including a solo shot of her own.

Cal (21-17, 4-6 Pac-12) used a solo homer off the bat of Danielle Henderson to take an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first.

The Cats responded quickly when Goodacre led off the second with a solo homer, her 16th of the year.

After a scoreless third, freshmen Mauga and Mercado went back-to-back with a pair of two-out solo homers in the fourth to give Arizona a 3-1 lead.

In the bottom half, Cal loaded the bases with one out. Alleah Laxamana sent a foul ball toward the Wildcats' bullpen. First baseman Hallie Wilson reached over the fence to make the catch and threw a strike to catcher Goodacre to cut down the runner attempting to tag from third on the play.

UA broke the game open with four runs in the sixth. Kellie Fox led off the inning with a double and moved to third on a pop fly double by Goodacre. Mercado singled in a pair before Cynthia Pelayo and Hallie Wilson each added RBI singles to extend Arizona's lead to 7-1 after 5.5 innings.

Three walks loaded the bases for Cal in the bottom of the sixth with one out. The Bears plated one run on a groundout, but Piñon was able to limit the damage to just the single run in the frame.

After Arizona was unable to insure its lead in the top of the seventh, Piñon got the Bears in order in the bottom of the seventh.

The Wildcats have a weekend off before playing a doubleheader against New Mexico State on April 23 at Hillenbrand Stadium beginning at 4:00 p.m. PDT.
