DUNEDIN SPRING CLASSIC: Rogers, Turgeon lead Dunedin by Miami Springs.

DUNEDIN - The one-two punch of Ricky Rogers and Erik Turgeon is what Dunedin will be relying on to knock out its Class 5A, District 9 competition come early May.
It may not have been a surprise, but it was pleasant for Falcons coach Tom Hilbert when the aces combined to help Dunedin to a 9-5 win over Miami Springs in Thursday's early semifinal game at the Englebert Complex in the Dunedin Spring Classic.
"Those two guys are pretty good," Hilbert said. "They make a good combo for us."
Rogers' fourth win of the season and Turgeon's third save was not a complete knockout of the Golden Hawks, who trailed 3-1 after the second inning.
Yasmany Valdes singled in Carlos Pena for the Hawks in the second inning, but the Falcons answered quickly. Ryan McKenzie singled in Alan Mason, and Cody Lehasky followed with a two-run single that scored Cory Trudell and McKenzie. The Falcons then scored three runs in the third and fourth innings. Dunedin combined for 13 hits off Miami starter Justin Cox (3-3) and his replacement, Armando Hernandez, and went into the fifth inning with a 9-1 lead.
"We left a lot of people on base, but when you get that many hits you're going to," Hilbert said. "We were focused at the plate and it was nice to see."
Miami had the bases loaded on Rogers (4-0) in the third inning before he struck out the side. He allowed three hits and struck out four Hawks in five good innings, but Miami scored three runs in the fifth that included a clutch hit from Pena and scored one in the sixth. "We put up a good battle," Miami coach Phillip Wisser said. "Our kids didn't quit." Turgeon quieted the Hawks (10-4) in the seventh. He was also 2-for-3 at the plate. Steve Birge was 3-for-4 and Kyle Mills was 2-for-4 for Dunedin (9-2).
"Miami played an outstanding game," Hilbert said. "It was a hard-fought game with two teams just going out there and playing baseball."
