    Merged: Some game... / 2 Hits in 12 Innings / Harang complete game?

    Aaron Harang pitched some game last night, eh?

    9 innings...7 K's....1 R...not bad.

    Sad that Weathers had to pitch 3 innings...Sad that Wells allowed 7 hits and the team only scored one run on him...5 LOB...but the Pads had 5 LOB as well.

    Nonetheless, the good guys won!

    2 Hits in 12 Innings

    Interesting note from last night's game. A team hasn't been held to just two hits in 12 innings in over 20 years.

    From Elias via ESPN
    The Padres were held to just two hits in 12 innings in their 2-1 loss to the Reds. You have to go back more than 20 years to find the last major league team to be held to so few hits in a game that lasted at least 12 innings. On Aug. 26, 1986, the Expos were held to two hits in a 12-inning, 1-0 loss in San Francisco.

    Harang pitched outstanding. If it weren't for the 8th inning curse the Reds seem to have he more than likely would have had a complete game shut out. Harang also usually benefits from a ton of run support, unfortunately they couldn't get him the W last night.

    For all the abuse heaped on him directly (and indirectly due to his simply occupying the title "relief pitcher") Weathers has had a really good year and continues to be the most consistent option down there...my blood pressure is at a "bullpen low" when he pitches...that being said, it probably still is in the "might need medication" range

    He didn't finish the game, so no.

    Whether you win or not has nothing to do if its a complete game.

    He might get a nice pat on the back and an extra beer in the clubhouse from Jerry for sparing the bullpen through 9 but since he didn't go all 12 he can't get a complete game

    At the same time, you cannot pitch a complete game without getting either a win or a loss. So the two events are connected.

    Is it still a complete game if you pitch nine innings and are taken out, but the game goes into extra innings?

    No. He didn't complete the game.

    Nope. Have to pitch all innings your team plays.

    On the flip side you do get a complete game if you pitch say 5 innings and the rest are rained out.
