Nine, but innings can be adjusted according to how many pitches the pitchers are supposed to be getting in. They don't play more than one extra inning, and sometimes they just call it a tie after the ninth, if both teams are out of pitchers.

Are there any limits on how many innings a pitcher can pitch, in one game? Not in any official rules. In a MLB game on 1920 May 5, both pitchers threw for 26 innings. The game was called due to darkness with the score still 1 to 1.

Well in a full 9 Inning Game each time makes 27 outs. (3 outs for 9 innings). Thus combined the teams make 54 outs. So if every player swung and hit very first pitch and every pitch was an out that would be 54 pitches combined with both teams pitchers. However that would end in a 0-0 tie so it would go into extra innings so it wouldn't be a complete game. Thus if you say ONE player hit a first pitch and hit a home run on a first pitch to give his team a 1-0 lead and thus a complete nine inning game then it would be 55 pitches. However that would mean that both pitchers would have to be PERFECT and COMPLETELY ACCURATE. and the Hitters would have to swing and HIT every FIRST pitch so its almost completely impossible.

It would be impossible. If every pitch thrown in one inning was hit and out, there could only be 3 pitches. And yes, there have been MANY of these. Actually, I think the original contributor wanted to know if 3-pitch innings had ever been recorded by both teams in the same inning - thereby leading to a total of 6 pitches for the entire inning. As far as I can tell, there is no record of such a feat in the major leagues, although the following link does provide more information regarding recorded 3-pitch innings: http://www.baseball-almanac.com/feats/3_pitch_inning.shtml.

The Boston Red Sox and Brooklyn Dodgers played a 26 inning game on May 1st of 1920 that ended in a 1-1 tie and was called due to darkness (first MLB night game wasn't played until 1935). Both starting pitchers completed all 26 innings.

there are 3 outs in each half of an inning, 6 outs total for an inning, and a minimum of 9 innings are played, if the game is tied after 9 innings, they go into extra innings which can go on as many innings until a winner is decided, so you can play for 40 innings or even 100, which is impossible, but then, you never know, lol, the longest game played was 33 innings by the way

A normal baseball game has 9 innings, but if the game is tied at the end of 9, they will continue playing until they end an inning without being tied. Lets say it is 9-9 at the end of 9. They play he 10th and the Red Sox score and they are the home team, they win the game 10-9

In MLB, that was 26 innings between the Brooklyn Dodgers and Boston Braves on May 1, 1920. The game ended due to darkness in a 1-1 tie. Leon Cadore for the Dodgers and Joe Oeschger for the Braves both pitched all 26 innings.

In a standard baseball game, there are three outs per inning for each team, with nine innings played. If the home team is ahead after the visiting team has batted in the ninth inning, the game is over at that point (as there is no need for the home team to bat).

Seven Innings, unless of course the game is tied and then it is played until there is a complete inning played, in which the visitor's team is ahead or home team has scored one additional run.

To get out without scoring on both innings is a pair, to get out without scoring first ball is a golden duck, so to get out without scoring first ball on both innings is a golden pair.

For an individual team, 162 games X 9 innings per game = 1,458. That's assuming all games last a full nine innings, which is not always the case. A game CAN be called "complete" at any point after the end of the 5th inning, provided both teams have an equal number of offensive innings, if weather conditions prohibit the continuation of play. I have no idea how often this happens. Also, if the home team is leading in the middle of the ninth inning (or the middle of the 5th-8th if weather forces a stop in play), there is no need to play the bottom half of the inning, and the game is considered complete. And since the home team has a slight advantage in a game, I would say about half of all games end this way. So, even without the 5- to 8-inning weather games, about half of all games end at 8.5 innings. For all teams combined: There are 30 teams, each of which plays 1,458 innings, but since each game involves 2 teams, you have to divide that by 2. 21,870 innings. Again, that doesn't allow for games called at 5, 6, 7, 8, or 8.5 innings. Also, sometimes one or more additional games are required at the end of the regular season to break divisional or wildcard race ties. These are not included. Nor, for that matter, are playoff games and world series games.
