    I need help with this question

    I read this on another site, and I would like to know the answer to it.

    When was the last time a pitcher threw an inning and retired all three batters on just one pitch each (three pitches total for the inning)? I imagine it must have been fairly recently.

    Thanks!

    John Smoltz did it last year for Atlanta, as did Taylor Buchholtz for Houston also last year

    Oops, someone slipped it in when I wasn't looking.

    Smoltz didn't pitched on July 7, 2006. Was it another date? He did pitch on 6/7/06. It must have happened in the 3rd inning if it happened in that game at all.

    Ooh, bumping an eight-year-old thread. Since my first post, 14 three pitch innings have been tossed as far as I can tell. Without cheating ...

    Who was the pitcher who threw two three pitch innings within a three month span? (It happened within the past five years).

    Which pitcher tossed the most recent three pitch inning?

    #1. The pitcher who threw two three-pitch innings within a three month span was Randy Wells (7/1/11 & 9/25/11).

    #2. The last pitcher to toss a three-pitch inning was Edwin Jackson (4/19/14).
