Best Answer

All perfect games in MLB history have been 9 innings in length.

The pitcher that had the most perfect innings in one game was Harvey Haddix of the 1959 Pittsburgh Pirates against the Milwaukee Braves at County Stadium in Milwaukee. He threw 12 consecutive perfect innings but the Pirates did not score as Braves pitcher Lew Burdette 'scattered' 12 hits over a complete game of 13 innings. In the bottom of the 13th, the first Braves batter, Felix Mantilla, reached base on an error by Pirates third baseman Don Hoak ending the perfect game. After a sacrifice and an intentional walk, Joe Adcock doubled to breakup the no hitter and win the game for the Braves.

Braves' pitcher Burdette called Haddix's performance "the greatest game that's ever been pitched in the history of Baseball".
