San Diego Prep Baseball : Dunckel Leads Fallbrook With Two HRs

Bill Dunckel hit two solo home runs and a single Wednesday to lead Fallbrook to an 11-0 win over Laguna Hills in the Pirate-Goodman Tournament at Fallbrook High.

In five games, Dunckel is 12 for 16 with three homers.

"He's the best athlete in our school and was when he was a sophomore," said Dave Heid, Fallbrook coach. "He's an amazingly talented kid. In baseball, he'll be a major league prospect. But he'd be the No. 2 guy on our tennis team or the No. 1 guy on the golf team if he wanted to be.

"I'm just glad he likes baseball. And the best part is, he's only a junior."

Dunckel wasn't Fallbrook's only hero Wednesday. Four other players homered as the Warriors improved to 5-0.

T.J. Flynn hit his third home run of the season with one on in the third and Anthony Reynoso hit No. 2, a two-run shot in sixth. Keith Jester and David Waite both hit their first homers of the year.
