In its biggest win since capturing the 2008 Class 5A state baseball title, host Dunedin routed Sarasota, the nation's No. 1 team, 10-2 on Saturday.
The Falcons had two big innings, scoring three runs in the first and seven in the fifth.
Dunedin's Kyle Kunnen, Alex Libby, Chase Smith and Casey Turgeon each had two hits. Kunnen and Libby each had three RBIs. The run support was more than enough for Falcons starter Mike Clarkson, who allowed just five hits.
"We always try to go out and play the best and see how things go," Dunedin coach Tom Hilbert said. "We were able to do things well in all aspects."
The Falcons improved to 20-3. The Sailors, who were ranked No. 1 by USA Today, dropped to 21-1.
