Monday night, Laura and I got a chance to see possibly the only perfect game in baseball that we will ever see. Although it was High School, and the game was called after 5 1/2 innings (regular length is 7 innings).
We have been seeing a lot of players that the boys played with back when they were at the Rising Star Baseball School. These days we see boys that played with them on a lot of teams. Sharyland, La Joya, Memorial, etc. Back then there was a very good player named Alexis that was pretty much the Top Kat’s star pitcher. Alexis now pitches and plays OF for McHi. He transferred from PSJA this last year and is currently a Junior at McHi (same as Matthew).
Monday night, Alexis pitched against Memorial and proceeded to throw a PERFECTO! 5 innings on the mound, facing 15 batters, with 7 KOs, no walks. Not a single memorial player reached 1st base.
Oh and guess I should mention Mcallen won 10-0, the game was called in the bottom of the 5th inning due to the 10 run after 5 rule. Hard to know if Alexis would have kept going, but he was definitely in the zone.
