Over the weekend, high school softball pitcher Andrea Chiaradio gave new meaning to the phrase “perfect game.” Philip Humber’s perfect game for the White Sox last week was perfect in the sense that no hitters were able to reach base. Chiaradio, who pitches for Stonington High School in Stonington, Conn., didn’t allow a single batter she faced to put the ball in play.

Chiaradio struck out all 21 hitters she faced in her team’s 3-0 win over Norwich. It is believed that she is only the second softball pitcher in Connecticut high school history to strike out every batter she faced in a perfect game.

“This was my first no-hitter in high school,” Chiaradio told the Westerly Sun over the weekend. “I probably was aware of it in about the fifth inning when a few of the girls on the bench said something about it when we were at bat. I knocked on wood. I tried not to think about it and not to psyche myself out. I just concentrated on getting the rest of the outs.

“I had a few 3-2 counts so that was close. And they tried bunting a few times, but they either fouled it off or just couldn’t get it down.”

Doesn’t the opposing coach know that’s bad form? You don’t try to bunt your way in a perfect game. On a side note, Chiaradio now has 60 strikeouts in 27 2/3 innings this season. I don’t know anything about softball, but I think it’s safe to say her stuff is nasty.
