Unlimited: If third strike gets past the catcher the runner can advance to the base and it could keep going.... :-)Correct :3. If the third strike gets past the catcher and the runner advances to base, it's not a strikeout.
The "Correct " is actually wrong. A strikeout is recorded whenever a batter receives a third strike. There are instances of pitchers notching 4 strike outs in a half inning. So it is possible to have a trillion strike outs in a single inning.
It has happening a few dozen times.
4. the correct answer is wrong. You can get as many strikeouts as you want per inning because the ball can get past the catcher but the batter can make it to first. there would be no earned runs in the inning though
The correct answer is 4, by striking out the side and then striking out when the pitcher is at bat himself
You can have unlimited strikeouts in an inning, by the catcher not stopping the 3rd strike, but 1st base must be unoccupied. the most ever accomplished in a game is 5 twice, but those were only exhibition games. 4 is the current record for a regular/playoff game.
For the Los Angeles Angels single game records, the pitcher with the most strikeouts in one game of nine innings is Nolan Ryan with 19. The pitcher with the most strikeouts in a game with extra innings is also Nolan Ryan with 19. The pitcher with the most strikeouts in one inning is Chuck Finley with 4. The record for most strikeouts in a game by the team is 18. The player with the most strikeouts in one game while batting is Dallas McPherson with 4. The most strikeouts by a batter in a game with extra innings is Billy Cowan with 6.
Yes, and as a matter of fact, in MLB history there have been about 40-50 pitches credited with 4 strikeouts in one inning because of this. Click on the 'Four Strikeouts in One Inning' link below to see all MLB pitchers that have been credited with four strikeouts in one inning.
There can be an infinite number of strikeouts in one inning. Usually and most of the time there are three but there are times it can be 4 or more. If the catcher drops a third strike and the batter reaches first base safely, that is still recorded as a strikeout for the pitcher.
if on one of the strike outs the catcher drops the ball and the batter reaches first base safely the out does not count
It is impossible to have 4 strikeouts in one inning because every strikeout is an out, and an inning ends when there is three outs. This "Answer" is wrong. A strikeout is recorded whenever a batter gets a strike three. If the ball gets past the catcher and the hitter gets to the base in time before the throw, there is a strikeout but no out. There have been 50 pitchers with 4 strikeouts in a single inning, Totaling up to 54 times. The most recent was Milwaukee Brewer's pitcher Manny Parra
Nolan Ryan with 383 (modern record - in the 1800s teams only had one pitcher and some of those guys had 500+ strikeouts per season)
While logic would lead us to believe that the most strikeouts a pitcher can get in one inning is 3, it's not true. 52 pitchers have recorded 4 strike outs in one inning. How does this happen? If a batter with 2 strikes swings and misses on strike three, but the catcher doesn't field it cleanly, he can run to 1B. It's not one of the three outs for the inning, but, it is a strikeout for the pitcher. No one has recorded more than 4 strikeouts in one inning, although it is possible. The most recent pitcher to accomplish this feat is Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners. He struck out four batters on June 3rd, 2010. For a complete list of all major league pitchers who have struck out 4 batters, see Related Links, below.
The most strikeouts by a pitcher in a World Series game is 17 by Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of the 1968 World Series against the Detroit Tigers.
Ryan Howard holds the record for most strikeouts for a batter in a World Series with 13 in 2009. Bob Gibson holds the record for most strikeouts for a pitcher with 35 in 1968.
Infinitely many, since the catcher could theoretically drop third strike after third strike.
The most strikeouts in baseball history in one inning is four. This has happened just 72 times in baseball history.
There have been three pitchers to strikeout 20 batters in one game and one pitcher to strikeout 21 batters in a game. The three to strikeout 20 were Kerry Wood, Roger Clemens, and Randy Johnson. All three struckout all those batters in a nine inning game. The pitcher to strikeout 21 batters, Tom Cheney, needed 16 innings. Cheney's 21 strikeouts is the MLB record for strikeouts by a pitcher in a single game.
Kerry Wood, Roger Clemens and Randy Johnson all had 20 strikeouts in one game
The Tigers team record for most strikeouts in a game by a pitcher is 16 by Mickey Lolich. He struckout 16 California Angels on May 23, 1969 and 16 Seattle Pilots on June 9, 1969.
Bob Gibson. On May 12, 1969 Gibson struckout Len Gabrielson, Paul Popovich, and John Miller of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 7th inning on 9 total pitches.
The pitcher who got the last out in the previous bottom of that inning. In other word, that pitcher can be credited with the win by making only one pitch. If I'm called in as a reliever and get a ground out to end the inning and then my team goes ahead in the top of the next inning, I would be the winning pitcher. Even if i only threw one pitch.
The pitcher is credited with a fraction that represents how many outs there were in the inning when they are relieved. If the pitcher is relieved is one out, they are credited woth 1/3 (one-third) of an inning. If the pitcher is relieved with two outs, they are credited with 2/3 (two-thirds) of an inning. A pitcher who starts the game and is relieved with one out in the seventh inning is credited with 6 1/3 innings pitched ... if relieved with two outs in the seventh inning is credited with 6 2/3 innings pitched. ... if relieved with no outs in the seventh inning is credited with 6 innings pitched.
The Mariners and Rangers combined to strikeout 31 times in a 9-inning game.
That makes no sense. If a batter strikes out then there done for the inning. Even If they batted around, which is unlikey you could still answer that. Either 1 to 3 times an inning errr huh? Anyway to re the question 2 seems to be the record by numerous players. However there is a report of one batter making all 3 outs in one inning (not just strikeouts) http://article.feeds4all.nl/Ottawa-Batter-Makes-3-Outs/1718995531.aspx
The win goes to the relief pitcher (assuming there was more than one relief pitcher) whom the official scorer feels was most instrumental in the victory. That relief pitcher must pitch at least 1 full inning, or pitch a crucial out if he pitches less than one inning.
The manager may only visit the pitcher one time each inning and have that pitcher remain in the game. The manager cannot visit the pitcher more than once during the same at-bat. If the manager visits the pitcher twice in one inning, a new pitcher must be brought in. If the manager visits the pitcher twice in the same at-bat, the pitcher must pitch to the batter, and then a new pitcher must be brought in.
As many as he wants however the manager is only allowed one mound visit per pitcher before he has to take that pitcher out of the game.
97 K's by Akio Nakamura for the Yankees in June 2012. He had 6 starts, 6 complete game shutouts, 6 wins, 1 perfect game, an ERA of 0.00 and 97 strikeouts. A feat never to be accomplished again.
