Perfect games don't get any more perfect than the one tossed by high school pitcher Mike Delio. A junior at Carle Place High School on Long Island, N.Y., Delio struck out all 21 batters he faced during a seven-inning game this week in an unforgettable performance that landed him on ESPN.

"During the final innings I was just trying to focus on what I did the whole game," Delio told ESPN's Cary Chow. "After the first time I got through the lineup I knew where to pitch to each kid. Me and my catcher were on a really good chemistry level and we just knew how to throw to each kid and went from there."

Helping his own cause in Carle Place High School's 15-0 win over Hempstead on Tuesday, Delio walked twice and stole two bases as well, according to Newsday.
