No, I mean how can a pitcher gets an "L" (on record), when he didn't throw a single pitch.

He comes into the game with a runner on 3rd, game tied, tries to pick off the runner, but throws it into left fiedl- runner scores, game over.

Well technically that run is charged to the previous pitcher. But let me make it more difficult.

Q: How can a pitcher start a game and get an "L", without throwing a single pitch?

He can't. If he doesn't throw a pitch, a batter can't hit. If a batter can't hit, a batter can't get on base. If a batter can't get on base, a batter can' get a run. If the opposing team scores no runs, a pitcher cannot get an L.

He would have to do something illegal like go his mouth 4 times which would walk the runner then there's an error on a pickoff attempt and the runner somehow scoress from 1st.

I'm sure the answer you're thinking of is much better, or at least I hope so.
