Best Answer

For a pitcher, 0. A pitcher can come in to relieve another, get the final out of an inning on a pickoff, and his team takes the lead in the next inning, while he is the pitcher of record.

For a team, 15. Each out takes at least one pitch. A pitcher would have to get 15 outs, and the game would have to be called after five innings for weather or another such distraction.
