    Jeff Nelson only threw one pitch in a game and got 3 outs. He entered the game in the 9th inning and his team turned a 1-6-4 triple play on his first pitch.

    I was at Royals stadium on 04/04/88 when George Bell became the first player to hit three HR's on Opening Day. I was also out there for Nolan Ryan's first no-hitter and Bret Saberhagen's only no-hitter.

    Tippy's Pick-offs

    I was keeping score and listening to the radio as a 14-year old when Tippy picked off three. I distinctly remember John Miller talking about how the third guy to reach first should basically stand on the bag. And I think he did for the first couple throws over. But Tippy kept on throwing to first and eventually caught him. Miller went nuts "He picked off THREEEEEE!"

    Tippy never threw a pitch to home plate with a runner on base.

    Picture being the last guy on base after the pitcher picked off the other two. I would be standing on the base and not moving.

The O's had to bring Lenn Sakata in to catch, I believe because of injuries, and the baserunners were so anxious to steal on him that they all were picked off!

    Good point. Forgot about pickoffs. So the theoretical record would be 1 IP and 0 pitches if a pitcher entered with bases loaded and 0 out and picked off all 3 runners without throwing a pitcher.

    Tippy came in on August 24, 1983 with a runner on first and picked him off. Then he walked the next batter and picked him off, too. Then he gave up a single and picked the third runner off.

    Tippy's line would have looked kind of scary 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K.

    And he must have had to throw at least five pitches - to home plate, that is...

    I'd be shocked if there wasn't a case of a pitcher getting credit for 1 IP in 1 or 2 pitches by virtue of inherited runners and either a double or possibly a triple play. Basically stating that I'm pretty sure the record is at most 2 pitches and likely even 1.

    September 7, 1935: Cleveland beats Boston thanks to an unusual triple play. With no outs and the bases loaded in game 1, and the Indians leading, 5–3, in the 9th, the Indians bring in Oral Hildebrand to pitch to Joe Cronin. Cronin lines his first pitch off the side of the head of Cleveland 3B Odell Hale. The ball caroms to SS Bill Knickerbocker, who throws to 2B Roy Hughes, who throws to 1B Hal Trosky to finish the triple play ending the game.
    OUCH! A 5-6-4-3 triple play!

    I know of three cases were a pitcher was credited for pitching a full inning on just one pitch.

    July 30, 1924: Bill Sherdel is called out of the Cardinals bullpen to pitch to PH Johnny Mokan of the Phillies. There are no outs in the eighth with runner's on 1B and 2B. Sherdel throws one ball, and Mokan bunts it in the air to Jim Bottomley coming in from 1B. He throws to SS Jimmy Cooney, who doubles the runner at 2B and throws to Hornsby who goes covering 1B. A triple play on one pitch.

    July 27, 1930: Cincinnati hurler Ken Ash throws one pitch in relief against the Chicago Cubs but got credit for a full inning pitched and a victory. Ash relieved in the sixth inning with two Cubs on base and nobody out, and promptly induced Charlie Grimm to ground into a triple play. All outs on tags. Ash was lifted the next inning for a PH, and the Reds scored 4 times, giving him the 6-5 win, his last ML win.

    That's a miracle for Kaz Ishii. Usually it takes him 3 pitches per batter just to get warm before he actually starts to try to get them out. Quite possibly the worst control I've ever seen on a pitcher that wasn't obviously afflicted with Blass Disease.

    Yeah, not really trivia, but as far as it goes...

    I happened to be watching a Cardinals game a few years back when Fernando Tatis set a basically unbreakable record... 8 RBI's in one inning (I believe against one pitcher).
    That pitcher would have to be Chan Ho Park of the Dodgers. I was in Oakland visiting a friend of mine and I thought I'd make it back in Southern California by the time the game ended, but somewhere over a 4000-foot climb up a mountain, I heard Ross Porter on the radio and how Tatis was the only player to hit two grand slams in an inning. That's how I remember the game.
