A Florida high school pitcher has tossed his fourth consecutive no-hitter.
Mitchell High senior Patrick Schuster did it Monday night on his home field at the suburban school northwest of Tampa.
The lanky left-hander struck out 17 to help his team beat rival Pasco High 5-0 in front of a full house of several hundred spectators.
Schuster's streak began April 3. He's piled up 60 strikeouts in the four games, helping Mitchell to a 19-3 record. He's 7-0 on the season.
Schuster, whose fastball tops 90 mph, has signed to play at the University of Florida next year but hasn't ruled out going straight to professional baseball.
The record for consecutive no-hitters in high school baseball is six.
