Jim Bouton holds the record for the most hits given up in a 9 inning complete game shutout. (14 hits).
Well, that certainly is a left handed compliment
Actually, in the case of Bouton, it was a right-handed compliment.
You are welcome for the set up
chip shot. Thanks.
On the topic of giving up the most hits in a game:
There was a guy named Allan Travers, who played a single game in the majors. On May 18, 1912, he gave up 26 hits in a 9 inning game. Not a shutout. Of course, in those days they weren’t into relief pitchers. He has an interesting biography. The circumstances pursuant to which he played in just one game and his life story can be found on Wikipedia. After his one game, he became a Catholic priest.
