St. Petersburg can't hang with Dunedin


© St. Petersburg Times, published April 21, 2001

DUNEDIN -- Dunedin scored 12 runs in the first two innings and rolled to a 13-2 mercy-rule win over St. Petersburg to capture the Pinellas County Athletic Conference title. After beating a surging Dixie Hollins 8-6 to reach the final and with John Stang (4-3) on the mound, the Green Devils believed they had a chance against Dunedin.

That wasn't the case.

The Falcons loaded the bases with no outs off Stang in the first and scored on a sacrifice fly by Brad Chamberlain. A walk to Ryan Harvey with the bases loaded gave Dunedin (23-2) a 2-0 lead.

Phil Peters singled to drive in two runs, and Chamberlain singled for his second RBI of the inning to make it 4-0.

With two runs scored in Friday's game, Dunedin shortstop Kenny Holmberg set a team record with 46 runs scored, breaking the previous record of 45 set by Aaron Sobieraj in 1999.

When asked where, if any, weaknesses lie on his team entering districts, Dunedin coach Tom Hilbert couldn't come up with any.

"Without sounding cocky, we're a pretty solid ballclub all the way around," Hilbert said.

Dunedin will host the Class 4A, District 9 tournament starting Tuesday.
