Oxford tossed his fourth straight no-hitter Thursday, striking out 13 in a 6-0 win over Hollis-Brookline, according to seacoastonline.com

"It feels great," Oxford told MaxPreps reporter Lynden Ostrander via text. "It's been a nice ride. I feel good with all my pitches and my defense comes to play behind me game after game."
He walked two and hit a batter in Thursday's no-no, telling the newspaper it was the best of his four no-hitters.
"But (it's) still not good enough," he said. "I expect a lot out of myself. I had a few walks, so there is always something to work on."

Oxford needs two more gems to tie Tom Engle and Chris Taranto for most consecutive no-hitters.
According to the NFHS record book
, Engle tossed six back-to-back no-hit games in 1989 for Fairfield Union (Lancaster, Ohio)

Four different pitchers have fired five consecutive no-hitters, the last being Patrick Schuster in 2009 for Mitchell (New Port Richey, Fla.)
Oxford's next start is scheduled for May 26 at home against Kingswood.
