The Dawgs wrapped up their 2023 Fall College tour yesterday in Seattle, WA as they took on the University of Washington Huskies.
In their final game of the tour, the Dawgs played one of their most competitive games of the trip. Ultimately, the Huskies would win by a score of 10-3 in 10 innings, but the Dawgs held their own and made an impression on the Huskies coaching staff.
Will Labonte (’25 Arizona State commit) got the start, pitching 2 innings allowing 4 runs on 3 hits with 2 strikeouts. Robert Scalzo (’25 uncommitted) pitched 4 innings allowing 3 runs on 5 hits with 2 strikeouts. Austin Collins (’25 uncommitted) through 1 inning allowing 1 unearned run on 0 hits. Jerome Pare (’24 Gonzaga commit) pitched a clean inning allowing 0 runs on 0 hits with 1 strikeout and Santiago Rodriguez closed it out pitching 1 inning allowing 1 run on 1 hit with 1 strikeout.
Offensively, Tyler Hummel (’24 LSU-Eunice commit) led the way going 2 for 4 with 2 singles, 1 RBI and 1 run scored. Eric Machej (’24 Illinois State commit) went 2 for 2 with an RBI double. Tim Piasentin (’25 University of Miami commit) went 1 for 4 with an RBI, and Avery Deisroth (’25 uncommitted) went 1 for 4 with a single.
The Dawgs competed hard and showed well over the course of the college tour. Each and every one of our athletes should be proud of the way they represented the Dawgs program and their families! It was simply an incredible experience and opportunity with many lessons learned that will undoubtedly serve our athletes well in their long term development.
