Leasure time

Manatee's spring is getting better and better.
A night after the school's softball team clinched a berth in the 5A-Region 3 semifinals, the baseball team upset top-seeded Port Charlotte 4-3 in the semifinals of the Class 5A-District 12 tournament Wednesday afternoon.
The hero was Steven Leasure, who allowed an earned run in eight-plus innings in outpitching Pirates stud David Holmberg, who is on his way to Florida and entered the game with a 7-0 record and a 0.14 ERA.
Manatee plays either Punta Gorda Charlotte or North Port 7 p.m. Thursday in the district championship game. The Hurricanes also clinched a spot in the regional tournament for the first time since 2002.
Regional playoffs begin Tuesday.
