Four No-Hitters In A Row? OK, That's Impressive

When I heard a high school baseball pitcher threw three consecutive no-hitters, it was like "Whatever." But when the same kid does it four times in a row ... now you've got my attention.

Yes, Patrick Schuster—a senior at Mitchell High School in New Port Richey, Florida—threw his fourth straight no-hitter last night, striking out 17 in 5-0 win. He's now 8-0 on the season with a 0.73 ERA and has whiffed 60 batters in the four starts. Oh, yes. The Beef O'Brady's must have tasted so sweet last night!

The four no-hitters breaks the Florida state record, but is actually two shy of the national record held by two different pitchers. Also, I've just been told that high school games are only seven innings, so his "feat" is really not that hard at all.
