Did you know that in the hit by a pitch in an inning record (above); Dock Ellis, Pink Hawley, Earl Hamilton, C.J. Nitkowski, Steve Sparks, Walter Thornton, Javier Vazquez, Jeff Weaver and Wilbur Wood all hit the batters in consecutive order?
The record for most hit batters by the same pitcher during two consecutive games is held by Sam Shaw who struck nine batters June 13th and 15th of 1893.
On May 1, 1920, Leon Cadore of the Brooklyn Dodgers and Joe Oeschger of the Boston Braves faced off in a twenty-six inning game and neither pitcher struck a single batter setting the Major League record for longest game without a hit batsman. The same record in the American League belongs to Ted Lyons of the Chicago White Sox who pitched a twenty-one inning game on May 24, 1929, and did not strike a single batter.
