List of World Series starting pitchers

The following is a chronological list of the starting pitchers for each World Series game contested in Major League Baseball.[1]

Deacon Phillippe (left) and Cy Young (right) started in the first World Series game.

Each pitcher's win–loss record for World Series starts, cumulative through the game in question, is listed when the starting pitcher received a win or loss. The absence of a win or loss indicates a no decision. Wins or losses a pitcher received in relief appearances are not included here.

The leader for World Series starts in a career is Whitey Ford, with 22 between 1950 and 1964, all for the New York Yankees.[2] Ford is the leader both in World Series wins by a starting pitcher, with 10, and World Series losses by a starting pitcher, with eight. Christy Mathewson is the career leader in World Series complete games, with 10 during 1905–1913, all for the New York Giants.[2] While complete games were once common in the World Series (the first edition without a complete game was 1959)[3] the most recent World Series complete game win was thrown by Johnny Cueto for the Kansas City Royals in 2015, and the most recent World Series complete game loss was thrown by Tom Glavine for the Atlanta Braves in 1992.

The record for the most innings pitched in a single World Series start is 14, held by Babe Ruth who won an extra innings complete game for the Boston Red Sox in the 1916 World Series.[4] Facing 48 batters, Ruth allowed one run on six hits while walking three and striking out four.[5] Several starting pitchers have been credited with zero innings pitched, by not recording an out, the most recent being Bob Welch for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 1981 World Series. Welch faced only four batters, allowing three hits and a walk, and was charged with two runs; his team ultimately won the game.[6]
