i use *SP's rated 7/8 that go into fatigue by the 7th or 8th inning. lo and behold, Ryne Duren, a 5/3 sp/rp, has pitched a 9 inning shutout and gone 10 innings in another game with NO fatigue!!! solid F/9 the whole way. sorry to let the cat outta bag but this is ridiculous

I am not particularly conversant in the details of all the rules (so I welcome correction), but I think these are the rules that explains the result you are questioning:


27.3 A pitcher reaches his POW in either of two ways:
A. He reaches his POW inning (or any inning after that) and
allows any combination of three hits or unintentional walks in the
same inning. His POW begins with the next batter after the third hit
and/or walk.
B. He reaches his POW inning (or any inning after that) and
allows any combination of four hits or unintentional walks in any
two consecutive innings. His POW begins with the next batter after
the fourth hit and/or walk


27.54 The maximum number of innings a starter can pitch without fatigue is 11.
27.55 A starter who “doesn’t have it” may “lose his stuff” before
his POW inning. If a starter gives up 5 runs in any one inning, 6 runs
in any two consecutive innings, or 7 runs in any three consecutive
innings, consider him fatigued and convert all readings followed by
dots to SINGLE** (all other runners advancing two bases).

So Ryne Duren CAN get fatigued on 3 hits or walks starting in the 5th inning, but can go to 11 like any other starter without getting fatigued if he is pitching well. A starter with a 7 rating can do the same thing, but can give up more hits and walks without getting fatigued in inning 5 and 6 as long as he does not give up a bunch of runs.

I don't seem to have the same luck with Duren, On the teams that I have had him recently , mostly 4-6 innings, with the most being 7.2 (and he had started to fatigue)

All this statement tells me is that you have never read ALL the rules.

As I think about it, I am a little fuzzy on how pitch count plays into this. It has been my assumption that the pitch count limit roughly correlates to and replaces inning limit, but otherwise it works the same.
