Fifty-eight pitches, Red Barret of the Boston Braves against the Cinncinati Reds in a 2-0 complete game shutout, 1944.

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.

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.

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.

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