I believe that almost every pitcher who has pitched for more than 30 innings has struck out someone in three pitches. It isn't very hard for a pitcher to strike someone out in three pitches, especially if they have pitched for 30 innings.

27 pitches. This is because there are 9 innings. The minimum batters that can go up each inning is 3. 9 times 3 is 27. If you pitched and the batter pop-flied every ball then it would be 27. But in the history books it has been recorded that 58 pitches were the least amount of pitches thrown in a game. It was set by Charley "Red" Barret, He did this in 1944 on August 10. He was on the "Boston" Braves. They changed their name to Atlanta Braves later on. Hope this helped!

Jerry Koosman of the 1973 Mets with 31 2/3. Currently (June 7, 2012), R.A. Dickey has thrown 24 2/3 consecutive scoreless innings.

The MLB record for most consecutive innings pitched without giving up a walk is held by Bill Fischer of the Kansas City Athletics who threw 84 1/3 consecutive innings without issueing a base on balls between August 3, 1962 and September 30, 1962.

six...3 balls and 3 strikes, or 2 strikes and 4 balls.

It would be impossible. If every pitch thrown in one inning was hit and out, there could only be 3 pitches. And yes, there have been MANY of these. Actually, I think the original contributor wanted to know if 3-pitch innings had ever been recorded by both teams in the same inning - thereby leading to a total of 6 pitches for the entire inning. As far as I can tell, there is no record of such a feat in the major leagues, although the following link does provide more information regarding recorded 3-pitch innings: http://www.baseball-almanac.com/feats/3_pitch_inning.shtml.

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.

Assuming it's an MLB game that's shortened to 6 innings, the winner would have to be the second pitcher because, by default, the starter cannot be credited with a win unless he pitches at least 5 innings.

It may have been May 17, 1927. The Cubs beat the Boston Braves 4-3 on a Charlie Grimm single in 22 innings. Bob Osborn pitches 14 innings of relief work!
