High school pitcher strikes out every batter in perfect game

Friday May 13th, 2016

St. Edward High School pitcher Jaret Edwards pitched what has to be one of the greatest games ever Thursday, striking out every batter in a perfect game. 

Edwards, a senior and George Washington commit, struck out all 15 batters he faced in the five-inning game, 11 of which went down swinging. His performance led St. Edward to a Division I championship over John Marshall. 

“He wasn't ahead on every batter. It takes extreme concentration because if you miss a pitch, it's a walk,” Eagles coach Matt Rosinski told Cleveland.com.

Edwards is no stranger to such kind of performances—he opened his season with a no-hitter.

“I usually don't smile on the mound, but when I got the last strikeout, I smiled,” Edwards said. “It was a pretty relieving moment.”
