In all games using innings, too many times to recall in one list.

This is a bit tricky to research, but since 1954, there have been 59 games which have lasted 14 innings or longer and one team or the other was shut out. This doesn't include a game in which, say, it was a scoreless tie for 15 innings, then in the 16th each team scored one run, then the game ended in the 18th 2-1, but it gives you a good idea that such a game happens about once or twice a year.

For this explanation, I will assume one batter is equal to one plate appearance and since the number of innings is not specified, I will assume a 9 inning game. These assumptions would make the answer 112.The maximum number of batters in a half inning where no runs were scored would be 6 (3 outs, 3 runners left on base), the maximum number of batters in a half inning, other than the bottom of the final inning, where 1 run was scored would be 7 (3 outs, 3 runners left on base, 1 run scored), and the maximum of batters in a half inning, other than the bottom of the final inning, where 2 runs were scored would be 8 (3 outs, 3 runners left on base, 2 runs scored).The visiting team would score 2 runs in 1 inning and no runs in 8 innings or 1 run in 2 innings and no runs in 7 innings. This would give them a total of 56 batters regardless of whether they scored 1 run in 2 innings ((7 * 6) + (2 * 7) = 56) or 2 runs in 1 inning ((8 * 6) + (1 * 8) = 56).Through the home team's first eight at bats, they would score 2 runs in 1 inning and no runs in 7 innings or 1 run in 2 innings and no runs in 6 innings. This would give them a total of 50 batters entering the bottom of the ninth regardless of whether they scored 1 run in 2 innings ((6 * 6) + (2 * 7) = 50) or 2 runs in 1 inning ((7 * 6) + (1 * 8) = 50). In the bottom of the ninth, the home team would score the run to give them the 3-2 win. The maximum number of batters would be 6 (2 outs, 3 runners left on base, 1 run scored). This would give the home team a total of 56 batters.Both teams would send 56 batters to the plate for a game total of 112.

In 1966, the Baltimore Orioles did not give up one single run -- earned or unearned -- to the L.A. Dodgers in the last 33 innings of the Series.

1997 when the Florida Marlins scored one run in the bottom of the 11th inning to defeat the Cleveland Indians 3-2 and win the World Series.
