Mark Buehrle Double Play Action

J.F. Weeks asked: Who was the last pitcher to face the minimum number of batters in a nine inning game and not have a no-httter?


Rick answered: J.F, thank you for your question.

The latest MLB pitcher that I was able to locate is Mark Buehrle, when he was with the Chicago White Sox.

On July 21, 2004 he gave up two hits to the Cleveland Indians in a shutout victory where he faced the minimum, 27 batters.

Both batters who got the hits were erased with "the pitcher's best friend", the double play.

Yours in baseball,

Rick
