Complete game question

Postby Kegglers » Sun Jun 20, 2004 6:25 pm

Are there any rules in MLB as far as innings pitched in a game? For some reason I am thinking after 9 innings you have to pull the pitcher. I can't remember a time when a pitcher went longer than 9. Well, maybe.....I think Jack morris did it for the Twins in the world series in like 1991. Can anyone verify that? And does anyone know of an innings pitched rule in MLB?

Jack Morris did it, and Roy Halladay did it last year against the Tigers. 10 inning CG SHO. In that game he had a no hitter going into the 8th. Dave Stewart pitched an 11 inning shutout in 1990.

As long as you throw the complete game, win and don't allow any runs, earned or not, it's a CGSO.

There is no innings limit. I don't know what year it happened, but I know Jaun Marichal(sp?) pitched 16 innings in a game.

Don't think any level of baseball above Little League (and maybe Babe Ruth) has any kind of innings limit. I saw a high school tournament game a couple weeks ago that went 12 innings; one pitcher went the full 12, the other one went "just" 10 -- but threw 166 pitches. Both coaches should be charged for the criminal abuse of young arms. Anyway, there's no limits in the pros, other than the common sense of the manager, and that's often in short supply.

Not sure if you mis-read my post, but I know high school pitchers don't have an innings limit. My point was the abuse some coaches put on the arms of young pitchers. The Arizona State coaches probably plan to use that kid in the link just at 3B because they know his arm will be toast from the excessive workload he's had in high school. That strikeout record is nice, but no way should a kid that age be asked to pitch that much. The story even mentioned he pitched another complete game (on two days rest) in between the two halves of the marathon game. I also seriously doubt those pitch counts. High school coaches fudge those numbers all the time to hide how much their using their kids. Only 86 pitches with 18 Ks on the first day? It's possible, but highly unlikely. Joe Labek, prepare to meet Tommy John.
