Ashley Hernandez didn't allow any runners on base. On the same day, Carlsbad High's baseball team had a game, and pitcher T.J. Ruiz threw a no-hitter. Two pitchers, same school, same day. How impossible was this? The Carlsbad Current-Argus talked to a mathematician who said the odds were 218 million to 1. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
