Stillwater's Drew Gilbert throws no-hitter at state tournament, continues insanely dominant senior season

He has struck out 98 batters in 48 innings this season.

The most dominant high school pitcher in recent Minnesota memory, Stillwater's Drew Gilbert threw a five-inning no-hitter to lead the Ponies to an 11-0 win over Eden Prairie in the quarterfinals of the state tournament on Friday. 

Gilbert, a 5-foot-11 left-hander whose fastball speeds towards home plate at more than 90 mph, struck out 10 batters and walked just one in five innings of work. The game lasted just five innings because of the 10-run rule. 

Gilbert's senior season has been insanely dominant. For the season, he's pitched 48 innings and allowed just 10 hits and ZERO earned runs while striking out 98 batters. 

His game log, according to MNBaseballHub, will make you laugh because of how crazy good it is.
