Dylan MacLean's No-Hitter Highlights Summer Tourney

MacLean, Spitznagel show why they are Oregon's top prep players

By Harry Cummins

     Dylan MacLean (Central Catholic 2020) was recently named Oregon's high school baseball Player of the Year  by Prep Baseball Report.  At the same time, another national entity, MaxPreps, announced that Will Spitznagel (Jesuit 2019) had been selected for the same honor as the state's best.

     In one classic baseball game played this weekend at the prestigious 15th annual Curt Daniels Invitational Baseball Tournament, the two Oregon prep stars showed just why they were selected for such high honors.

     Summer teammates now playing for Portland Baseball Club, MacLean and Spitznagel were locked in a scoreless game entering the bottom of the sixth inning against Narrows Baseball from Washington.  Thanks to a lead-off triple to the deepest part of the cavernous Concordia University field by Nolan Thebiay (2019 Wilsonville/Montana State commit )PBC was able to load the bases with 2 out in the inning.

     Spitznagel then stroked his second hit of the day, a sinking line drive to CF, that rolled out of the glove of a diving Cade Dessert (Gig  Harbor HS 2020).  The only 3 runs of the game scored on the spectacular play and sent PBC and their ace, MacLean, out for the seventh and final inning, attempting to protect his no-hit bid.

     MacLean retired the first two hitters in the inning before issuing a walk.  The final out came on a hard hit ball to the shortstop, none other than Spitznagel, who fired the throw to first and complete this showcase baseball game for the two prep standouts.

     MacLean, who has already commited to play for the University of Washington Huskies, led all  Oregon 6-A pitchers this past season in Wins, ERA, and Strikeouts.  Spitznagel will play next season for the Oregon Ducks.  Both players were part of the 6-A Boys baseball championship game last month, won by Jesuit 2-1 over Central Catholic, in 12 innings.

     A special note of recognition should go to Narrows centerfielder Dessert, who besides going 4 for 4 in an earlier game the same day against the Seattle Stars, made a miraculous back hand snag after sprinting deep into the right-center gap to keep the game scoreless.  

     The 6-day, 12 team Curt Daniels tournament ends Monday, July 8, with 3 games at Hudson Bay High School in Vancouver.

  2. Well done - a very nice summary of a game I wish I had seen in person. I have had the pleasure of watching several games in this tournament over the last couple of years. It is exciting baseball that deserves more media attention. We will see many of these lads playing for a few more years at the next level and can say we "saw them when."
