3, many times.

There are many pitchers who have made the fewest pitches in one inning. Three. Each batter swung at the first pitch and it resulted in an out. It still happens today, although it's usually four to six.

Fewest Pitches Thrown in an InningSix. If the pitchers for the home & visiting teams can induce a ground-out on the 1st pitch to each of the 1st three batters he faces. I believe it to be 3 (three) if it occurs in the ninth inning for the home team pitcher whose team has a lead, then the inning is complete without the home team having to pitch. Also a putout of any type would suffice, not just a ground-out. Other outs may qualify too, such as batting out of order, however it does not reduce the pitch count. The out of order batter must a have a minimum of 1 pitch.

In 1944, Charley "Red" Barrett of the Boston Braves threw only FIFTY-EIGHT pitches during a nine inning complete game. Barrett's Braves shutout the Reds 2 - 0 and the game set major league records for least number of pitches known to have been thrown by a single pitcher in a complete game and shortest game played at night.

No pitcher in baseball history has ever thrown the minimum of 27 pitches in a 9 inning game.

27 pitches dude u should know that

it could just be 1 pitch. all bepends on what stage the game is when that pitcher pitches. it would have to be the 5th inning or later.

Depends on how many pitches are thrown

Fewest Number of PitchesThe answer is 81. If the pitcher was to throw a no hitter and strike everyone out. Each person has three strikes. There are three outs alloted for an inning. Nine pitches thrown in an inning times the nine innings equals 81. Edit: First, You did not answer the question, as you are referring to a hypothetical situation. The question asked for the name of the player who achieved a no-hitter in the least amount of pitches. Secondly, although I do not know the answer, your hypothetical situation is still wrong. A pitcher could achieve a no-hitter in 27 pitches. If the opposing team's batters swung on every pitch and grounded or flew out, that would be 3 pitches (outs) an inning times nine innings for a total of 27.Edit #2: It could be as few as 24 if the home team was ahead in the middle of the ninth. --JorgeNon-hypothetical answer: The record is 58 pitches, by Red Barrett of the Boston Braves in a nine-inning 2-0 complete game against the Cincinnati Reds on August 10, 1944. This is also the shortest recorded pro baseball game. -ThanksForAsking

Pitch count has nothing to do with eligibility to be the winning pitcher. In a scheduled 9-inning game, the starting pitcher must pitch 5 complete innings to be eligible to be the winning pitcher. Relief pitchers must be the pitcher of record when the winning team takes the lead, and never relinquishes the lead, to be the winning pitcher.

No, a pitcher needs to pitch 5 complete innings to be a pitcher of record on the winning side. The pitcher who was on the mound when the final out of the 5th inning was recorded would be credited with the Win -- even if he only recorded 1/3 inning

New pitcher gets 9. A returning pitcher gets 5.

They have to pitch the complete game...

There are no set number of pitches in each inning. The absolute shortest number of pitches that could be pitched in one inning is 6, with 3 outs per half-inning, assuming each batter swung at the first pitch resulting in an out. I don't know the most pitches that have been thrown in one inning. I have watched games where a pitcher (or multiple pitchers) have thrown forty or more pitches in one half-inning alone. Until 3 outs have been recorded, a pitcher will continue pitching to batters. If a batter steps into the batters box with an illegal bat, he is immediately called out. If three batters on each team did this, you could have zero pitches thrown in an inning.

In 1944, Charley "Red" Barrett of the Boston Braves threw only FIFTY-EIGHT pitches during a nine inning complete game. Barrett's Braves shutout the Reds 2 - 0 and the game set major league records for least number of pitches known to have been thrown by a single pitcher in a complete game and shortest game played at night.

It depends on the league. Usually if its a new pitcher he gets 8 pitches. If the pitcher is coming back in for the next inning he usually gets 5 pitches (the total pitches to warm includes a throw-down by the catcher to 2nd base on the last pitch of the warm up)

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.

In 1944, Charley "Red" Barrett of the Boston Braves threw only FIFTY-EIGHT pitches during a nine inning complete game. Barrett's Braves shutout the Reds 2 - 0 and the game set major league records for least number of pitches known to have been thrown by a single pitcher in a complete game and shortest game played at night.

a picher will throw roughly 120 piches in a 9 inning outing.

He is a pitcher...he mostly closes (Pitches last inning/s (1/9) of a game for the Yankees)

I think 45.00, but I'm not sure

India holds the record for the fewest runs in an inning in test cricket.
