DUNEDIN -- As nice as it is to win a county championship, Dunedin's players and coaches admitted that Saturday's PCAC title game was just another step toward the ultimate goal of a state championship.

Behind four RBIs from Joey Angelberger and a strong outing by right-hander Jamie Garris, the Falcons defeated Pinellas Park 13-2 in five innings. Garris pitched four innings and allowed no runs and one hit. He said he wanted to finish the game for Dunedin (27-0), but since he will start the second game of the district tournament next week, he was on a pitch count.

Marcus Liwag took the loss for the Patriots (18-9). He allowed 10 runs and 11 hits in two innings. Dunedin, No. 1 in Class 4A and ranked No. 2 nationally by Baseball America, scored five runs in each of the first two innings.

After a leadoff double by Jeremy Bellotti, Steve Doetsch and Brian Dopirak followed with singles. Angelberger knocked in two runs with a base hit to make the score 5-0.

In the second, Doetsch and Dopirak singled and later scored on a hit by Gene Novak and a fielder's choice by Garris.

Angelberger hit a two-run double to increase the Falcons' lead to 10.
