furinige (振り逃げ?) or swing and escape

Post by ProlinePlayer » Sun May 05, 2013 4:45 am

I was looking up something and came across this

I don't know how many baseball games I've watched in my life so I guess I must be a bit slow not to have know this.

Did you know, that it is possible (and has happened) for a pitcher to record 4 strikeouts in a half-inning?

Never seen it happen or just didn't notice at the time. An example would be with 2 strikes, batter swings and misses, catcher misses/drops the ball, batter runs and reaches first. Although safe at first this would also be recorded as a strikeout for both the pitcher and batter.
