KLTV Catches Up With Carlisle Pitcher Gunner Baker on His 15K Perfect Game [VIDEO]
PRICE — Throwing a perfect game is rare enough.
What Carlisle pitcher Gunner Baker did is the rarest perfect game of all. During a 15-0, five inning, win over Gary on Friday, Baker threw his 2nd perfect game in as many years.
This time, not only did no one get on base, no one put a ball in play. Baker struck out 15 hitters in a row.
“I just tried to stay relaxed and not think about it,” said Baker.
He did admit, in the final inning, the nerves were getting to him.
“The last inning, the 2nd batter went 3-2 and that is when I started getting real nervous, I wanted to finish it out,” he said.
