I'm sure it's 1, but I can't think of any particular instances of that.

One strange instance that sticks out in my mind was during the 2011 World Series, when Tony LaRussa made a pitching change and called Lance Lynn in from the bullpen. Lynn faced one batter, intentionally walked him, and then another pitching change was made.

If you're talking about complete games by starting pitchers, Charley "Red" Barrett of the Boston Braves only needed 58 pitches to go all 9 innings on August 10, 1944.
