Concord’s Wachter is picture perfect
- Updated: June 1, 2021
Concord High School’s Jonah Wachter wasn’t dominant for seven innings Monday, but only because Concord’s Division I tournament game against Goffstown ended after six.
Wachter, a senior, pitched a perfect game in Concord’s 10-0 win, which ended an inning early because of the 10-run mercy rule.
Wachter threw 73 pitches, struck out 14 and doubled in a run. Only one of the four balls Goffstown put in play left the infield.
“He had all of his pitches working,” Concord coach Scott Owen said. “He was throwing in and out, up and down and getting ahead of guys.”
Wachter struck out the first eight batters he faced. He also K’d the side in the sixth.
