According to the pitching game finder, there have been only 20 games since 2000 with fewer pitches in 9 IP -- once by Rich Harden, in fact, 81 pitches on 2005-07-14.

I don't know if all of these games had accurate pitch counts, it could be even more rare. Aaron Cook had a 74 pitch game on 2007-07-25, and by looking at the Retrosheet event files it looks like there were no pitch counts missing. Carlos Silva also had a 74 pitch games on 2005-05-20. Those were the lowest pitch counts for 9 IP since 2000.

Why go through a 1-2-3 inning on 12-15 pitches when 35-40 will do?

I think it's just about impossible to make any determination by the two game sample size.

They held on to win, 4-2. The Rangers,on the other hand, won their game, 4-0. Do the Rangers have better relievers or were they lucky?

I guess there is no longer any reason to watch the last 2 innings of the game I TiVoed.

Thanks

Rafael Soriano of Tampa Bay closed out the Angels in the 9th.
It's already been updated on WikiPedia.

Don't know if this Link will work...
