On October 13, 2012, David Phelps was the Yankees pitcher in the 12th inning when Derek Jeter was injured.Phelps gave up two runs on three hits in that inning and took the loss for game one.

For example, if a pitcher comes in to start the seventh inning, gives up two base hits and is replaced without recording an out, the box score will show he pitched 0 innings. At the bottom of the box score it will have a statement "<name of pitcher> pitched to two batters in the seventh inning'. Sometimes you hear broadcasters refer to it as 'plus'. Say the starter is replaced after giving up a base hit in the seventh inning but before recording any outs. You might hear the broadcaster say "<name of pitcher> went six plus innings today".

WHIP is a new statistic for pitchers and it means Walks plus Hits per Inning Pitched. You add up the number of hits allowed and add to the number of walks allowed and divide by innings pitched. If a pitcher has walked 50 batters and given up 150 hits and pitched 180 innings, the WHIP would be calculated as (50 + 150) / 180 which equals 1.11.

It stands for Walks/Hits innings pitched. It is pretty much a stat that shows on average how many base runners a pitcher will allow per inning pitched.

Not necessarily. A pitcher could have a decent ERA but give up several hits and walks an inning. An adequate way to evaluate a pitcher would be to look at his WHIP (walks and hits per inning pitched), along with ERA

It's the walks and hits per inning pitched. In other words it's the average number of walk and hits a pitcher gives up per inning pitched.

After 30 consecutive whiffs he would ask the pitcher for his balls back (baseballs of course).

WHIP stands for Walks plus Hits per Inning Pitched and is a relatively new statistic for pitchers. Add the number of walks a pitcher allows to the number of hits a pitcher allows and divide by the number of innings pitched. This gives you the pitcher's WHIP. Like ERA, the lower the WHIP the better. Example: A pitcher has pitched 100 innings, given up 30 walks and 90 hits. Add the number of walks allowed to the number of hits allowed (30 + 90 = 120) and divide by the number of innings pitched (120 / 100 = 1.2). The pitcher's WHIP is 1.2.

No, if the hitter eventually scores in that inning, it would not be an earned run.

This probably means that if he gave up, say, 5 hits over 6 innings, maybe 1 in each of the first 5 innings. In other words, he didn't give up all 5 hits to 5 consecutive batters.

WHIP is an abbreviation for 'Walks plus Hits per Inning Pitched'. It is a relatively new statistic in baseball that shows, approximately, how many baserunners a pitcher allows per inning. WHIP is calculated by adding the number of base hits a pitcher allows with the number of walks a pitcher allows and then dividing the sum by the number of innings the pitcher has pitched. For example, there is a pitcher who has pitched 200 innings, given up 175 base hits and 84 walks. You would add the number of base hits to the number of walks (175 + 84 = 259) and divide by the number of innings pitched (259/200 = 1.295). The pitcher's WHIP is 1.295. The lower the WHIP, the better the pitcher has pitched. Any pitcher that has a WHIP less than 1.000 has had a great season. The lowest WHIP in MLB history was Pedro Martinez of the Boston Red Sox in the 2000 season. He pitched 217 innings, gave up 128 base hits and 32 walks for a WHIP of 0.737.

Joe Di Maggio of the New York Yankees had hits in 56 consecutive games during the 1941 season.

The ball is in play like any other batted ball and is considered fair whether or not it ricochets into foul territory after hitting the pitcher. If the ball hits the pitcher on the fly and is caught by a fielder before it touches the ground, the batter is out. If a ground ball touches a pitcher and another fielder grabs it and throws the batter out at first base, the pitcher is given an assist on the putout.
