Best Answer

There are two possible answers to this. If the H is listed next to the ER (earned runs), SO (strike outs) and BB (base on balls), it is a number of hits that the pitcher gave up. However, if you see it right after the pitcher's name: Joe Bozo (H, 1), then it stands for a "Hold" and the number right after that is the number of Holds he has been credited:

Hold



A Hold is credited any time a relief pitcher enters a game in a Save Situation, records at least one out, and leaves the game never having relinquished the lead. Note: a pitcher cannot finish the game and receive credit for a Hold, nor can he earn a hold and a save.
