Hmmm, maybe it could be because one of these things:

As you get tired you may start to stride less and this could cauyse you to throw your pitches higher.
Or it could be that you’re rushing to the plate. I believe I read somewhere that rushing will not only injury, nut you tend to leave your pitches way high.

just make sure you follow through the entire way. If you cant throw it accurately still, take some more off and throw a strike. I’;ve encountered this quite a bit this year.

when a pitcher starts to miss high alot of times it is due to his shoulders not being even. when the back shoulder is low the pitcher will usually miss high. when the front shoulder is low the pitcher will usually miss low. this could happen when you start to get tired and then try to throw harder with your upper body.
