You Got Carlos Gomez in My David Cone!

If you thought Carlos Gomez' cycle earlier this week was good, wait until you read about what Colorado high school baseball player Jobi Wall did:

   "A senior right-hander, Wall struck out six batters and retired 15 in a row in a five-inning, 18-0 victory over Coal Ridge. At the plate, the left-handed hitter tripled, singled, doubled, then homered in only four innings.

    "I was kind of aware of it, then it happened," said Wall, who is 6-feet-6, 205 pounds and also plays shortstop when not pitching. "My teammates were very supportive. Everything went right and I got a lot of lucky bounces."

Wow! He pitched a perfect game and hit for the cycle in the same game. Not even Micah Owings could do that given a million chances. Also, Owings' arm would fall off after about 2,000 tries, so that would hinder him somewhat.

Wall is a senior at Faith Christian High School. Let's see...he goes to a school called "Faith Christian", plays baseball, and lives in Colorado. He must be a Cardinals fan!

Why did you cut me out of that picture?

A high schooler throws a shutout, hits for the cycle, bangs the prom queen and still doesn't celebrate like Joba does over a strikeout.

Okay, I'm done grinding that axe. For now.

Chief Wahoo, we try to be positive here at Walkoff Walk. Well, unless we're talking about the Mets, because nobody fucking likes the Mets.

hey Chief, can I borrow that axe for a bit? There's a certain NL West team that needs a little...trimming. I need to make a spot on the roster for this kid.
