OT: Something different, take the quiz!

Ok Braves fans, with the slew of rosterbation floating around on the site, I thought it might be nice to change things up a bit.  A friend and I like to quiz each other about baseball topics every now and again and one day he came across a couple of questions that stumped both of us - at least initially.  So let's see just how smart we all really are, huh?

 

Question 1:  How can a fielder to turn an unassisted triple play without ever touching the baseball?  (you must elaborate or give examples)

 

Question 2:  Let's assume a pitcher throws 9 complete innings (regardless of score or who is winning and excluding errors and walks).  How many total hits, actual base hits, could he have given up without allowing a single run (earned or otherwise)?

 

Now, I will preface this by saying the reality of either is slim to none but it is nonetheless a possibility.  These are not trick questions!  Also, please no cheating!  The fun in this exercise will be in discussing all the possible, and possibly ridiculous, scenarios everyone comes up with.

 

Post your answers and I'll let you know if they are correct.
