Many Players have Struck out 5 times in one game. That is the record. The record for a nine inning game is (5), but in an extra inning game the record is (6). Cecil Cooper (Boston) Billy Cowan (California) Alex Gonzalez (Toronto) Sam Horn (Baltimore) Rick Reichardt (California) Carl Weilman (St.Louis) Don Hoak (Chicago) and Craig Monroe (Detroit)

For hitters, it means leading your league (AL or NL) in batting average, RBI, and homeruns. For pitchers, it means leading your respective league in ERA, strikeouts, and wins. The last hitter to do it was Carl yastremski in 1967 and Jake peavy did it for pitchers in 2007.

That's a tough question to answer because there is really no 'average MLB pitcher' stats. Some pitchers, like the starter, might pitch 6 or 7 innings in a game while a reliever may come in and only pitch to 1 batter. The chances are that the average starter will have more strikeouts than the average reliever. However, it is pretty easy to say how many strikeouts are in the average MLB game. In the National League for 2009, there were 1295 games played and 18205 strikeouts recorded. This averages out to 14 strikeouts per National League game. In the American League for 2009, there were 1135 games played and 15386 strikeouts recorded. This averages out to 13.6 strikeouts per American League game.

The American League uses the Designated hitter, and the pitcher does not bat as in the National League.

There are two leagues in American major league baseball, the American League and the National League. The American League has the designated hitter rule which allows for someone other than the pitcher to bat in the pitcher's place. The pitcher does not bat in the American League. The National League does not have the designated hitter rule. The pitcher does bat in the National League.
