One answer is ,.... Jack Billingham pitched 13 innings while with Colorado of the Mid-West Winter League in 1975 I seem to recall a pitcher for Victoria BC , pitching 23 innings in first game of a double header back about 1951. This was a AA league I believe W.I.L or P.C.L. Leagues changed names a few times over the years .... lol If anyone can verify the correct answer please email me at jaca56.com The most innings pitched by a pitcher in a single game is 26 and is held by Leon Cadore of the Brooklyn Dodgers and Joe Oeschger of the Boston Braves on May 1, 1920. The game went 26 innings and wound up in a 1-1 tie. Both Cadore and Oeschger pitched the entire 26 innings. It is the longest game, innings wise, in MLB history.

You multiply the number of runs the pitcher has given up by the number of innings in the game then divide it by the number of innings the pitcher has pitched

No because if the pitcher pitched a perfect game and his team did not get runs that would be unfair to the pitcher and a game is supposed be 9 innings

IP stands for Innings Pitched. It is a pitching statistics that records the amount of innings the pitcher pitched. It can be divided into thirds by the outs that were recorded while the pitcher was still on the mound. For example: Its the 5th inning and there are 2 outs. The pitcher needs to be taken out of the game and is replaced with another pitcher. The number of innings pitched for this game would be 4 2/3. The relief pitcher would then pitch 2 1/3. This would add up to the complete 7 inning game.

That is Babe Ruth of the Boston Red Sox who pitched a 14 inning complete game against the Brooklyn Robins in Game 2 of the 1916 World Series, winning 2-1. The opposing pitcher, Sherry Smith, pitched 13 1/3 innings losing the game in the bottom of the 14th on a walk, sacrifice bunt, and single which scored the winning run.
