Pitch Count

I found the article written by Jerry Crasnick on April 13 2006 about pitch counts. I'm not going to post the whole article, but in the article...

Article wrote:• During the 1988 season, major league pitchers surpassed 120 pitches in a game a total of 599 times. Last year they did it 135 times. The number of 140-pitch games in a season declined from 65 in 1988 to a mere two last year.

• There were a total of 11 starts of 160 pitches or more during the 1988-89 seasons. But there hasn't been one since 1997, when Boston's Tim Wakefield knuckleballed his way to a 169-pitch outing against Milwaukee.

• After Ron Villone of Cincinnati threw 150 pitches against St. Louis in 2000, there was a five-year gap before Washington's Livan Hernandez duplicated the feat last summer.

Thanks for that article, ABS. I think I'm going to have to agree that it was Wakefield who last accomplished the feat. Should the poster of this question decide to step up and say it's someone else, they'll need to bring some evidence. For now though, I'll leave this thread open for discussion.

If I'm not mistaken, the answer is Mr. Tim Wakefield who pitched 169 pitches against Milwaukee in 1997

Sorry for the late response - I kind of forgot I posted a question.
