WESTFIELD, IN - Team Wisconsin finished the Future Games on the wrong side of a 9-8 final with Team Minnesota/Iowa. The two teams traded leads, and Wisconsin had a late two run lead but couldn’t hold on.

3B Colton Coca (Case) got the scoring started in the first with an RBI single to give Wisconsin an early 1-0 lead. RHP Tyler Chadwick (Marshall) kept it a 1-0 game with a pair of punchouts in his first inning of work.

Trailing by two in the fourth, C Thomas Otto (Appleton North) drilled a triple deep over the centerfielders head, driving in a pair of runs. Otto finished with a big day at the plate that included a triple and a double to left center.

Team Wisconsin struck for a pair of runs in each of the fifth and sixth innings thanks to some clutch two out hitting. In the fifth, Mitchell Alba (Franklin) smoked a line drive to right center that drove in Cameron Dupont (West De Pere) and Max Wagner (Green Bay Preble). Dupont finished his day 1-for-2 with a deep double to left field.

In the sixth, the two knock was delivered by OF Alex Ryan (Lakeside Lutheran), who drove in Otto and Coca.

On the defensive side of the ball, 2021 RHP Vincent Trapani (Eau Claire Memorial) turned in one of the only two scoreless innings for Team Wisconsin. Trapani struck out two in his frame, again showing a strong arm and swing and miss type stuff.

While their final lines may not have shown it, several of the arms showed good stuff on the mound. RHP George Klassen (Port Washington) gave up a pair of free passes but struck out the side in between that, reaching 92 mph in his frame.

Team Wisconsin finished the Future Games 0-2-1, but individually turned in several outstanding performances over the weekend. Stay tuned early next week for more recap and scout notes from the event.
