Unlimited: If third strike gets past the catcher the runner can advance to the base and it could keep going.... :-)

Correct :3. If the third strike gets past the catcher and the runner advances to base, it's not a strikeout.

The "Correct " is actually wrong. A strikeout is recorded whenever a batter receives a third strike. There are instances of pitchers notching 4 strike outs in a half inning. So it is possible to have a trillion strike outs in a single inning.

It has happening a few dozen times.

4. the correct answer is wrong. You can get as many strikeouts as you want per inning because the ball can get past the catcher but the batter can make it to first. there would be no earned runs in the inning though

The correct answer is 4, by striking out the side and then striking out when the pitcher is at bat himself

You can have unlimited strikeouts in an inning, by the catcher not stopping the 3rd strike, but 1st base must be unoccupied. the most ever accomplished in a game is 5 twice, but those were only exhibition games. 4 is the current record for a regular/playoff game.

The number of strikeouts in an inning of baseball?

How many pitchers with 4 strikeouts in one inning?

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.
