Three one pitch outs?

Oh, right... style over substance.

Yes I do know what it is and good for him.
 
2017-04-20 01:49:55 PM  
Dunno about that eighth one. But still fun to watch.

No, strike outs are the best possible result (for the defensive team) of every at bat with nobody on base (sometimes double plays may be better).

The opponent hitting the ball creates risk than throwing a couple strikes.

Who's Soren? It's Storen subby.

Strikeouts are fascist.

So KKK is an immaculate inning? Subby and baseball scoring is racist.

Throw some ground balls...It's more democratic.

Delivering a pitch is too dangerous. *This* would be the immaculate inning:

Batter 1 steps to the left-hand side of the plate. The pitcher toes the rubber. Noting a defensive shift, Batter 1 then steps to the right-hand side of the plate. Batter 1 is immediately called out before the pitch is delivered. (Rule 6.06(b).)

Batter 3 steps to the plate. The pitcher toes the rubber. The fielding team's coach calls time and informs the Umpire that Batter 3 is using an illegally-corked bat. The Umpire agrees and Batter 3 is called out immediately. (Rule 6.06(d).)

Batter 2 steps to the plate. The fielding team calls to the Umpire's attention that Batter 3 batted out of order. Batter 2 is called out immediately. (Rule 6.07.)

Three outs, and the pitcher never even goes into his motion. Immaculate.

Can't get one pitch outs if they can't hit the ball.

You can reach base on a strikeout.

This text is now purple: dywed88: No, strike outs are the best possible result (for the defensive team) of every at bat with nobody on base (sometimes double plays may be better).

Yup. You could conceivably get six strikeouts in an inning and still keep your no-hitter and your shutout intact.

Sure. But you can expect to reach base on just under a third of balls put into play. The odds of reaching base on a strikeout are far lower.

Intentionally walk the first batter. Intentionally walk the second batter. Third batter hits into triple play on first pitch.

That's why it's called a "clean sheet."

I was thinking you would have to hit the first two batters with a pitch but I forgot about the rule change.  One pitch per inning will surly extend your career.

Didn't LA Dodger Bob Welch do this in an All-Star game in the early 80s? Or did he 'just' strike out the side?
 
2017-04-20 04:54:43 PM  
Too bad he couldn't do that in game 5 against the Cardinals in 2012. Yeah, as a Nats fan I'm still bitter about that.

FTFY

KickahaOta: Dunno about that eighth one. But still fun to watch.


I agree on both points.
 
2017-04-20 07:02:54 PM  
Of course this had to happen to my Orioles.  All those pitches were straight over the plate except maybe the last one which had some movement on it.  Crappy hitting.

And don't call me surly...

My dad once told me a pitcher could throw a complete game with only 9 official pitches.  Each inning the leadoff batter hits a triple, then tries to steal home but the batter interferes.  Runner goes back to third, batter is out, pitch doesn't count.  Repeat as necessary.
/ Just as legit, just as unlikely as yours.  But yours was more  interesting.
