A complete game means the entire game. It entirely depends on how many innings are played in the game. I suppose then the answer to your question is nine, as that is the minimum number of innings in an mlb game. If that game goes into extra innings, the pitcher will have to continue to pitch until the end of that game. ---- In MLB, the game must go at least 4 1/2 innings to be considered complete if it starts raining or something else happens to cause the field to become dangerous to play on.
