Maxwell pitcher's bid for fifth consecutive no-hitter ends - barely

Maxwell High School's Steven Perry failed in his bid to pitch a state record-setting fifth consecutive no-hitter last week - but not by much.

Perry surrendered a two-out, second-inning base hit to Sutter's Mat Sanders, the only hit he allowed in Maxwell's five-inning, 10-0 win in the Shasta Lake Bass Tournament in Redding.

The Maxwell senior tied Winters' Byron Randolph (1963) and East Nicolaus' John Kukuruda (2010) for most consecutive no hitters with four, according to Cal-Hi Sports.

On Friday, however, Perry was at it again. He and teammate Tyler Wells combined to no-hit Truckee 6-0 in the championship game. Perry pitched four innings and struck out eight; Wells three innings and struck out five.

Perry hasn't allowed a run and just three hits in 40 innings for the Colusa County school of 136 students. He is 8-0 with 88 strike outs and just five walks on the season.

Wells, meanwhile, is 33-1 during his four-year varsity career.

The Northern Section school entered the week with a 37-game winning streak.

The Panthers (21-0), 104-10 over the last four years under coach Eric Lay, will play host to Lindhurst 7 p.m. Tuesday night in a nonleague game.
