If the next batter gets another safe hit, the first may advance more than one base at a time. A player may also hit a sacrifice bunt or a sacrifice fly.

After his retirement Nolan Ryan became the career leader in no-hitters with seven. The summit of success for a starting pitcher is to win 300 games in a career. Left-handed pitchers are usually more proficient against left-handed batters. Pitchers generally need in any case two or three days of break between each full game
