I believe that almost every pitcher who has pitched for more than 30 innings has struck out someone in three pitches. It isn't very hard for a pitcher to strike someone out in three pitches, especially if they have pitched for 30 innings.

How many pitch in a 9 inning game?

In a normal MLB game it is not uncommon to see 3 to 4 pitchers used in a 9 inning game. Many pitchers are capable of pitching a full 9 innings and many have. The general rotation usually allows a team to have a starter who pitches 5 - 7 innings, a reliever who takes over for when the starter is tired, and a closer who generally is called upon when the team is winning to stop the opposing team from scoring any runs in the final 1 or 2 innings. If you are asking how many pitches are thrown in a single game there are far too many variables that influence the outcome of that statistic. The average I believe falls around the 100 - 150 mark per game per team. So anywhere between 200 and 300 pitches for both teams in an entire game.

Not even a no hitter, no matter how bad people want it to be.
