Baseball Trivia - Fewest Pitches in a CG

Watching Chien Ming Wang pitch a very economical game against the Red Sox made me wonder who actually held the record for the fewest number of pitches thrown in a complete game (of at least 9 innings).

The answer?

58 pitches by Charles "Red" Barrett on August 10th, 1944 in a 2-0 win for Barrett's Boston Braves over the Cincinatti Reds. Red Barret gave up 2 hits, no walks and no strikeouts.
