Maintain Your Brain - MLB Playoff Edition

To celebrate the MLB playoffs, today's puzzle is baseball themed. It's also short and sweet, so that you can watch the games. :)


In a 9 inning playoff game, what is the minimum number of pitches that a pitcher, who pitches the whole game, can throw?

That's the puzzle. Have fun watching baseball!

  1. Answer:


    The visiting pitcher threw 24 pitches through 8 innings and retired all 24 batters. He then gave up the game-winning home run to the first hitter in the bottom of the ninth. Therefore, he threw 25 pitches.

    Have fun watching baseball tonight. I'm hoping the Cardinals put on another offensive performance like they did on Monday night. :)
