Patrick Schuster’s No-Hitter Streak Ends
Mitchell High School Pitcher Patrick Schuster’s bid to tie the national record of six consecutive no-hitters fell short when he gave up a Double to Drew Doty in the third Inning yesterday. Schuster had thrown four consecutive no-hitters prior to Doty’s hit.
Schuster did not have his good stuff working as he allowed three runs on three hits with five walks in five Innings. He did manage five strikeouts, but Mitchell High was defeated in the Class 6A, District 7 tournament semifinals.
Schuster, who is committed to attend the University of Florida, grabbed national attention with his streak. I’m sure he’s a little relieve to have the spotlight off of him. For more details on Schuster check ou this St. Petersburg Times report by Staff Writer Joey Knight.
