Stonington's Chiaradio accomplishes the ultimate feat: pitches perfect game with 21 strikeouts

Stonington High School junior pitcher Andrea Chiaradio pitched a perfect game Saturday morning in a 3-0 victory over Norwich Free Academy, but there was more.

Chiaradio (3-1) struck out all 21 batters she faced in the win.

"We threw a lot of drop curves and rise balls," Chiaradio said, crediting catcher Julie Royer for calling the game. "I was trying not to think about (a perfect game). I was just focused on getting the outs.

"The last hitter (Emily Devito) fouled off a few balls, so I was nervous, but I threw her an outside fastball."

Ally Curioso was 2-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored for the Bears (6-1).
