There’s nothing better than a perfect game, right? It’s the highest accomplishment a pitcher can achieve. Throughout the history of Major League Baseball, only 23 perfect games have occurred.

But none of them have ever been this good.

A high school softball pitcher in New Jersey not only tossed a perfect game, but struck out every single batter she faced.

That’s Cedar Grove high school pitcher Mia Faieta. She’s putting up some unreal numbers this season. The sophomore has a 1.36 ERA over 17 appearances. In 106 innings pitched, she’s racked up an incredible 229 strikeouts. She’s somehow given up 20 runs this year, but we’re not sure how. Maybe that’s a typo.

And, hey, just in case you wanted to see a scorecard from the event, here you go:

Of the 21 hitters Faieta faced, 18 went down swinging.

So, what the heck do we call this? A perfect game doesn’t seem appropriate. This was somehow better than perfect.

When a pitcher strikes out the side on nine pitches, some refer to that as an immaculate inning. After this start, we may have seen our first immaculate game.
