The Sonoma Academy baseball team from Santa Rosa, Calif, did it again. Yep, another no-hitter.
That is now six consecutive games of no-hit baseball after a 9-1 victory against Tomales on Tuesday.
Pitchers Kyle Duchynski (four innings), Dylan De La Montanya (two) and Oscar McCauley and Daniel Brown combined for the no-no. Tomales’ run came on a walk, stolen base, balk and sacrifice fly.
The streak began April 7 and includes three games shortened by California’s mercy rule at five innings.
There was some controversy last week on a ball hit to third base that Sonoma — as the home scorebook and therefore official scorekeeper — ruled an error, although other observers viewed it as a hit. That would have halted the streak at 27 2/3 innings.
Consecutive no-hitters is not a record kept in the state record book or the National Federation record book, so the run might not be a record, but it’s impressive nonetheless.
Sonoma Academy next plays Friday against St. Vincent de Paul (Petaluma, Calif.).
