Texas baseball signee Kyle Muller strikes out 18 straight, records 36 consecutive outs on Ks

Dallas Jesuit’s Kyle Muller, who’s headed to Texas to play baseball next year, had quite the outing in a game Monday against Austin Lake Travis.

Muller struck out the first 18 batters he faced and carried a perfect game into the seventh before allowing a single, which he followed up with another strikeout. In his past three starts combined to that point, Muller had recorded 36 consecutive outs — all on strikeouts. That streak ended when he coaxed a double-play ground ball to end the seventh inning.

He finished Monday’s game with 21 strikeouts, and, according to the Dallas Morning News, Muller is 4-0 on the season with a microscopic 0.42 ERA in 33 innings, with a whopping 66 strikeouts.

Oh yeah, he also leads the Dallas area with 12 home runs. Here he is mashing a walk-off earlier this month:
