Anywhere from zero to four. Zero=all walks to four=all singles

The answer is seven. Though it's highly unlikely it will ever occur, it's possible to get six hits in an inning without scoring a run. Here's how it's done. The bases are loaded on three hits, then two runners are put out on the basepaths somehow. The bases are reloaded on two more hits. The sixth batter must then hit a ball that strikes one of the runners before the fielder can make a play. Under the rules, he would get credit for a hit, but the runner would be out and the team would not score.

The answer of seven can't be right either. The reason is because if the sixth batter hit a base runner with a batted ball the inning would be over because of the third out. So six would have to be the most hits to get in a run 99.9 percent of the time. I guess there is no real guarantee.
