2013 Perfect Game All-American Classic
presented by Rawlings - San Diego

For the third consecutive year the West team defeated the East, this year doing so by a final score of 8-6 to pull ahead in the all-time series 6-4-1.

Hickman, Neb. native Jakson Reetz was named the game MVP by going 2-for-4 with two runs driven in, one run scored and three of the eight stolen bases by the West squad. Reetz had the biggest hit of the evening, drilling a 94 mph fastball from Dylan Cease to the fence in right-center field for an RBI double in the top of the second inning.

Down two runs in the top of the fifth, the West scratched three runs across to secure a lead they would not relinquish. Reetz reached on an error which scored Jack Flaherty, and Marcus Wilson scored on a wild pitch as part of a walk issued to Monte' Harrison. Another double steal with Reetz crossing homeplate pushed the game to 5-3.

After the last out was recorded, the West and East teams quickly converged to the pitching mound to re-create the double dog-pile from a year ago, in what is proving to be a tradition at the Perfect Game All-American Classic.

Eighteen of the 19 pitchers that took the mound threw 91 or harder, with nine of those pitchers touching at least 95 mph. Tyler Kolek's 99 mph fastball set an event record.

Keaton McKinney, who struck out three of the four batters he faced in the bottom of the fourth inning, picked up the win, while Zack Shannon, who struck out Nick Gordon to end the game, earned the save.

As part of the Classic festivities Michael Chavis claimed the Rawlings Home Run Challenge, while Gordon was named the Jackie Robinson Player of the Year at the event's annual dinner banquet.
