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 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.

A pitcher's era (earned run average) is calculated as follows: 1. Number of Earned Runs 2. Times 9 3. Divided by number of innings pitched So, if a pitcher gives up 3 earned runs in 5 innings then we first multiply 3 times 9 = 27. Then we take 27 and divide it by 5 (for innings pitched) to get an era of 5.4. Also, an earned run is a run that scores without the defense creating any errors.
