The number of innings in a baseball game depends on the level of competition. In Major League Baseball a complete game is normally nine (9) innings. Games that are called due to weather or games that are forfieted can be less than nine (9) innings. Games that go into extra innings can be played until the last out is made or until the winning run is scored.

Through the end of the 2007 regular season, there have been 4 extra innings complete no hitters and no extra innings perfect games. 1) 1997 - Francisco Cordova and Ricardo Rincon of the Pittsburgh Pirates no hit the Houston Astros 3-0 in 10 innings. 2) 1965 - Jim Maloney of the Cincinnati Reds no hit the Chicago Cubs 1-0 in 10 innings. 3) 1917 - Fred Toney of the Cincinnati Reds no hit the Chicago Cubs 1-0 in 10 innings. 4) 1908 - Hooks Wiltse of the New York Giants no hit the Philadelphia Phillies 1-0 in 10 innings. Thirteen other pitchers have pitched games where they have given up no hits through nine innings only to allow a hit in extra innings. These are not considered no hitters because they did not keep the other team hitless through the entire game.

There are three answers to this. First, the Official Game, or Regulation Game. If a game must be called, it is Official after five innings. Next, the Complete Game. This is nine innings. And finally, the Extra Innings Game. The only way a Major League Baseball game can end in a tie is if it's called. The rules state that the game must continue until either someone wins or the umpires call the game, usually on account of darkness. In the 2014 season there were two 19-inning games and a handful of 18-inning games; the longest game was 26 innings. The most important rule in extra innings: if a team can't field nine players, it forfeits.

Yes, a pitcher can pitch as many games as necessary, even if they are consecutive. Remember, starting pitchers aren't the only ones who pitch. Many times relievers and closers can play many games in a row, but starting pitchers still can pitch consecutive games if it is necessary. If there is any reason for the starting pitcher to play in a second consecutive game, he will more than likely pitch in relief for one or two innings.
