I remember quite a few years back, hearing about a Rockies game where Colorado scored at least one run in every inning. If my memory serves (and that's iffy at best), that hadn't been done in some arbitrarily long time.

Which leads to the question: when? Anyone have a notion on that?

A quick check of the other three games where a player had 8 PA revealed that Cameron also faced 6 different pitchers (Bohanon 3x; DiPoto, McElroy, R. Ramirez, Leskanic, and Veres once each). Kinsler and Catalanotto - who had 8 PAs each in thee same game - only faced 4 different pitchers (D. Cabrera, Burres, R. Bell, and Shuey).

I wonder if a single batter facing 6 different pitchers in a 9-inning game is the record? Also, I wonder what the record is for most different pitchers faced by a single batter in an extra-inning game?

While it is not too uncommon for a team to have more than 6 players pitch in a game (especially in a blow-out), generally many of those pitchers only go an inning or less and only face a few batters in the lineup. That, combined with the common practice of pinch-hitting for regulars once the game is in-hand (or out-of-hand, depending on which side you're on), leads me to think that a batter facing 6+ pitchers in a game is pretty rare.
