Carlisle pitching trio dominating opponents

The Carlisle Indians may practice their fielding, but there's been little need.

"It's a little boring," said senior Shadow Sanders about playing in the field.  "Just standing the whole time watching."

First, second, third or short. The Indians rarely see the ball.

"It's crazy," said junior Zach Brightwell.

The Indians are crazy good. Sporting a perfect 15 and 0 record, the Carlisle pitching staff has yet to surrender a single earned run. The Indians have pitched 4 straight no hitters.

"It's very important," said Sanders of the streak.  "Most teams have never done four straight no hitters in a row."

Opponents are going hitless. Some can't even make contact. Senior Gunner Baker has tied a national record with 22 consecutive strikeouts.

"Our last game when I knew I had a chance to tie the record, I started thinking about it a little more in that first inning," said Baker.  "That's the first game I've thought of stuff like that. I ended up tying first (place)."

"I've never seen anything like it and I've been playing since I've was a little kid," said Brightwell.  "22 consecutive strike outs is amazing.

Baker's not the only dominating arm. Joined by Brightwell and  Sanders, the 1A Indians, have three top pitchers.

"It's fun because it keeps you wanting to get better and a friendly competition," said Brightwell.

The Indians pitching staff has combined for 215 strikeouts.

"It's awesome," said Baker.  "In 1A you don't see very many three dominating pitchers on one team. So it's amazing. They're working hard this season and we're doing stuff we've never done before."
