Lions dominate Tigers 6-0 with combined no-hitter

Etna's Rob Thom painted an 18-strikeout masterpiece.

Etna’s Rob Thom painted an 18-strikeout masterpiece.

To say that Etna’s Rob Thom dominated the Portola Tigers from the hill in Friday’s NSCIF D-V playoff game would be a massive understatement. He struck out the side three times, and had at least two strike outs in every inning. By the fourth inning, Thom had 11 Ks. At games end, it was 18. He gave up no runs and no hits, while walking four. Yet, he will not be credited with a no hitter, at least not officially. Why?

Well, it was a situation that couldn’t have occurred last year, but rules change–sometimes with unintended negative consequences. In prior seasons a high school pitcher was limited to 10 innings per week on the mound. This season, pitchers are limited by a pitch count of 110 maximum in a game (but are allowed to finish with a batter already started).

Thom’s final pitch was strike three for the 20th out of the game. Then he had step off the mound and turn the task of securing the 21st and final out to Steve Lampert. Lampert and the Lions took care of business to record a combined no hitter.

It was one of those times when no one liked the rule, even the Portola coach was disappointed that Thom wasn’t able to put the finishing touch on his masterpiece. Yet, in the bigger picture, we all know that protecting a pitcher’s arm is more important than a check mark in the MaxPreps stats, even if it would have taken just a few more pitches.

Of course, winning a baseball game isn’t just about pitching, and the Lion bats also produced well. (more…)
