I don't know what the ACTUAL fewest number of pitches is, but the fewest POSSIBLE is 27, one for each batter.

The most one-hitters thrown by a pitcher in a career is 12. Both Bob Feller of the Cleveland Indians, and Nolan Ryan, who played with four different teams, hold this record.

There are no set number of pitches in each inning. The absolute shortest number of pitches that could be pitched in one inning is 6, with 3 outs per half-inning, assuming each batter swung at the first pitch resulting in an out. I don't know the most pitches that have been thrown in one inning. I have watched games where a pitcher (or multiple pitchers) have thrown forty or more pitches in one half-inning alone. Until 3 outs have been recorded, a pitcher will continue pitching to batters. If a batter steps into the batters box with an illegal bat, he is immediately called out. If three batters on each team did this, you could have zero pitches thrown in an inning.

Actually it’s one.

One pitch, if thrown outside of the strike zone is one ball in baseball. Four pitches thrown outside of the strike zone during the course of one at-bat equals a walk, also referred to as a base-on-balls (BB)

The least amount POSSIBLE can be 24 pitches, if each batter of the home team (who is winning, yes a complete game CAN be won by a home team with only 24 batters coming up to bat, the losing pitcher would have only faced 24 batters and each got out on one pitch) NEVER GONNA HAPPEN more realistically the right answer would be 27 pitches but each batter would have to get out on one pitch

Only in one situation and that is if he can convince the umpires that he suffered an injury between the time he was called in and the time the batter enters the batter's box (like during his warmup pitches). Otherwise, he must pitch to at least one batter.

At least one pitch and in the other side the number could be unlimited. Remember that the maximum count is 3 balls and two strikes and after next pitch either is base and balls or strike out the batter. Problem is that after the second strike every other foul is not counted and this is the reason it could be an unlimited number of fouls. I have seen bat turns with sixteen pitches to make a batter, but could be more as it is explained.

27 pitches. If a pitcher can get every batter out with one pitch then the total amount of pitches for the game for that pitcher will be 27.

No, once you are tagged out you don't get credited with anything if you are the one at bat. Now if another batter hits the ball and there was already a man on base at first and he gets tagged at 2nd base, then yes the man on 1st base would get the single from his previous at bat If the batted ball was cleanly a base hit and he was thrown out trying to advance past first base then the batter would be given the hit corresponding to the last base the batter reached safely. If the batter was thrown out at second, the batter would be given a single. If the batter was thrown out at third, the batter would be given a double. If the batter was thrown out at home plate, the batter would be given a triple.
