Baseball: Team gets 4th straight no-no

It may be at the small school level and most of the games haven’t lasted a full seven innings, but Sonoma Academy of Santa Rosa seems to have set a baseball state record with four straight no-hitters as a team.

The Coyotes beat Bay School of San Francisco 11-1 last Friday in a five-inning affair (shortened due to the mercy rule) and although they gave up a run on two walks and an error it was another no-hitter, according to totals on the team’s MaxPreps page and on their own web page.

Dylan De La Montanya, who also went 3-for-4 at the plate, pitched the no-hitter and struck out eight.

The day before at Tomales was a full seven-inning game and although Sonoma Academy gave up another run due to walks and errors, the Braves got no hits in a 5-1 loss. Ethan Jones and Kyle Duchynski were credited with the Coyotes’ pitching.

The no-hit streak began on April 7 in a 13-0 romp in five innings vs. Technology of Rohnert Park. De La Montanya and two freshmen, Byron Spars and Jordan Salmonsen, pitched the innings in that one.

It was 15-0 in a win over Calistoga in the second game of the streak earlier last week in another five-inning contest. De La Montanya again pitched three innings with two others – Duchynski and sophomore Oscar McCauley – each getting in one inning.

There currently isn’t a category in the Cal-Hi Sports record book or in the National Federation record book for most consecutive no-hitters by a baseball team. Some additional research indicates that it may be a record, although because we’ve had similarly dominant small schools like Sonoma Academy in the past that have played somewhat similar schedules with a lot of five-inning games it’s hard to know for sure if four no-hitters in a row is indeed the record.

For now, we’ll put it into the files as a record and we’ll see if there is anyone else out there who knows of a total that might be higher.

Sonoma Academy plays next on Tuesday against Rincon Valley Christian at Doyle Park in Santa Rosa.
