It is impossible to have 4 strikeouts in one inning because every strikeout is an out, and an inning ends when there is three outs. This "Answer" is wrong. A strikeout is recorded whenever a batter gets a strike three. If the ball gets past the catcher and the hitter gets to the base in time before the throw, there is a strikeout but no out. There have been 50 pitchers with 4 strikeouts in a single inning, Totaling up to 54 times. The most recent was Milwaukee Brewer's pitcher Manny Parra

Who has most strike outs in one inning in a baseball game?

While logic would lead us to believe that the most strikeouts a pitcher can get in one inning is 3, it's not true. 52 pitchers have recorded 4 strike outs in one inning. How does this happen? If a batter with 2 strikes swings and misses on strike three, but the catcher doesn't field it cleanly, he can run to 1B. It's not one of the three outs for the inning, but, it is a strikeout for the pitcher. No one has recorded more than 4 strikeouts in one inning, although it is possible. The most recent pitcher to accomplish this feat is Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners. He struck out four batters on June 3rd, 2010. For a complete list of all major league pitchers who have struck out 4 batters, see Related Links, below.

If your team goes ahead in the top of the inning and a new pitcher goes in in the bottom of the inning - which pitcher gets the win - the starting pitcher or the 2nd pitcher?

The pitcher who got the last out in the previous bottom of that inning. In other word, that pitcher can be credited with the win by making only one pitch. If I'm called in as a reliever and get a ground out to end the inning and then my team goes ahead in the top of the next inning, I would be the winning pitcher. Even if i only threw one pitch.

When calculating a pitcher's ERA and the pitcher is relieved before the inning is over do you credit a full inning pitched for the ERA stat or how do you divide the inning up?

The pitcher is credited with a fraction that represents how many outs there were in the inning when they are relieved. If the pitcher is relieved is one out, they are credited woth 1/3 (one-third) of an inning. If the pitcher is relieved with two outs, they are credited with 2/3 (two-thirds) of an inning. A pitcher who starts the game and is relieved with one out in the seventh inning is credited with 6 1/3 innings pitched ... if relieved with two outs in the seventh inning is credited with 6 2/3 innings pitched. ... if relieved with no outs in the seventh inning is credited with 6 innings pitched.
