Former AppleSox Hurler Tosses Perfect Game

Rasmussen Gets Big Hug from Dane Lund
03/22/2015 11:35 AM -

WCL alum Drew Rasmussen of Oregon State tossed the Beavers' first perfect game in school history yesterday at Goss Stadium, the summer home of the Corvallis Knights. The freshman struck out 10 Washington State batters and allowed no base runners in OSU's 3-0 win over the Cougars.

Rasmussen pitched last summer for the Wenatchee AppleSox. The right-hander went 3-2 over 10 appearances, 9 starts and 45.1 innings pitched while posting a 5.16 ERA for the Sox. It was Rasmussen's first introduction to college baseball.

Drew has emerged as the Beavers' Saturday night starter in the Pac-12 conference. The frosh from Colbert, Washington is 3-0 with a 1.36 ERA on the young season and has struck out 40 and walked only 5 over 39.2 innings pitched.

Another WCL alum, Dane Lund, caught Rasmussen's gem. The senior catcher from Astoria, Oregon played four seasons with the Corvallis Knights (2011-2014). Lund earned first-team all-WCL honors in 2013.

Other West Coast League alums that were part of Beaver history on Saturday were OSU designated hitter Gabe Clark (Victoria), right fielder Joe Gillette (Wenatchee), second baseman Caleb Hamilton (Cowlitz) and pinch-runner Joey Jansen (Wenatchee).

Rasmussen's final out, a strike out, was featured at #2 on ESPN Sportscenter's Top Ten Plays last night.
