Team Wisconsin wrapped up the 2021 Future Games with a 10-4 loss to Team Indiana, finishing the week with a 2-1 record.

C Evan Gustafson (Altoona, 2023) paced the Wisconsin crew offensively, as the left-handed hitting backstop continued an impressive all-around week. He drove two runners home in his first at-bat and cranked a home run in his second, one that comfortably traveled over the right-center wall.

OF/CIF Quinn Falish (De Pere, 2023) jumped on one early in his first at-bat of the day, barreling it deep into the right-center gap for a double. Falish has worked that way all week and he also pitched, running his fastball up to 87 mph.

OF/1B Caleb Karll (Madison West, 2023), OF Ryan Drumm (Edgewood, 2023), and C Dominic Kibler (New Berlin West, 2023) all had hits.

On the mound, RHP Thomas Burns (Hortonville, 2023) continues to cement himself as an upper tier arm in Wisconsin. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound Burns touched the 90 mph mark for the second time this week, reaching back for a 91 mph fastball in the sixth inning yesterday.

RHP Noah Dreier (Brookfield Central, 2023) started the game for Team Wisconsin on the mound and retired the side in order. Dreier’s first fastball of the inning registered at 83 mph, but he essentially sat at 86 mph throughout after that pitch. The separator for Dreier continues to be his breaking ball; a pitch he’s shown supreme confidence in with natural downward action and an aptitude to spin.
