Need help

What happens more often?

A no hitter

Or

5 for 5 at the plate

My username is 4for4 because it’s a “perfect game” for a hitter. Seldom talked about but an incredible accomplishment.

If a pitcher throws a no hitter it’s all over the news reports. If a hitter goes 5 for 5 crickets.

    not sure about 5-5 games, but about the rarest feat i know of in baseball is striking out 20 batters in 9 innings. only been done by 4 players:
    Clemens x2
    Wood
    Johnson
    Scherzer

    George Brett, Roger Clemens and Tommy Brady.

    The rarest is Stennett going 7 for 7.
    No one else has 8 hits in a game and no one else ever went 7 for 7.

    I was thinking is there anyone else like Stennett who owns something all by themselves ?

    BTW. Yes Stennett did it at Wrigley but it was a 22-0 game.

    wow, 7-7 is amazing! not surprised that is a singular feat.

    George Brett, Roger Clemens and Tommy Brady.

    The rarest single game feat would be Tatis hitting two grand slams in one inning, its only been done once

    2 triple plays in one game, Minnesota Twins on July 17, 1990. Only occurrence ever.

    1932 Johnny Burnett was 9 for 11
    Brandon Crawford in 2016 went 7 for 8
    Cesar Gutierrez went 7 for 7 in 1970
    Rocky Colavito went 7 for 10 in 1962

    7-7 or 7 hits is rare but its happened more than once. A 22-0 blow out is a lot easier to get 7 hits than it is in extra innings facing real pitching the entire time too. Game isnt over until its over. Pedro doesnt get credit for a perfect game because he lost it in the 10th inning, those stats still count

    How could it be “the rarest” if there are other feats that have only been done once also ?

    Gutierrez 7 for 7 was a doubleheader. Not a single game like Stennett. Stennett’s 7 for 7 stands alone as the best perfect hitting game for at bats and hits without failure.

    . It’s only happened once in a 9 inning game.

    There are many 6 for 6’s in major league history, but just one 7 for 7.

    There can be things tied for the rarest but other than things that have never happened once is the lowest. If being tied for it happening once negates it then there is no rarest feat

    Guiterrez was extra innings not a double header. The first time it happened was actually 1892 but I'm fine not counting 1800s stats

    It doesnt matter if its extra innings or not. A game is a game. Pedro doesnt get a perfect game in 1995 because the game wasnt over yet. Until the game ends with a winner the stats for that game are one game.
