Two Straight No-Hitters For H.S. Pitcher

Buchanan High School pitcher Jack Wheeless is riding a hot streak. The junior lefthander has thrown two straight no-hitters.

Longtime Bears head coach Tom Donald has never had a pitcher do that in his coaching career, although he says six others have accomplished the feat in Central Valley baseball history.

Wheeless, who is 9-0 this season with an earned run average of 0.37, says he believes there is still a lot of room for improvement.

His next start is against rival Clovis West on Tuesday, when Wheeless will go for a third straight no-hitter.
