St. Francis (Mountain View, Calif.) ace pitcher Michael Strem (pictured) took the hill this past Wednesday to face Monta Vista in the opening round of the California Interscholastic Federation Central Coast Section Division I playoff. To say Strem pitched a terrific game in the Lancers 2-0 win over No. 16 Monta Vista would be a misstatement of gross proportions. Strem tossed a perfect game to propel his team to the second round of the playoffs, and even more impressive than being perfect over his 7-innings of work is that the senior hurler only needed 66 pitches in the effort. For all you who have difficulty with math (present company included), that works out to an average of 3.14 pitches per batter, which is as efficient as it is amazing. According to the Mercury News, Strem struck out eight Monta Vista hitters, and of his 66 pitches thrown, 48 were strikes and 18 were balls, which, perfection aside, is a tremendous strike-to-ball ratio. St. Francis is off until Saturday when they’ll face either Valley Christian or Wilcox in the quarterfinals. My guess is the team will trot Strem out to the pitcher’s mound once again, and if he’s as half as good in the quarters as he was against Monta Vista, then the Lancers will tap dance into the semifinals.
