Have a question about scoring an earned/unearned run.
Say there is a situation where you get the 1st batter out, 2nd reaches on an error, the 3rd and 4th batters get on by BB, you strike out the 5th batter, then the 6th hits a triple to score in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th batters, the 7th batter you strikeout to end the inning.
Now with given the error on the 2nd batter which should of been the 2nd out of the inning and then striking out the 5th batter which should of ended the inning (hypothetically speaking), do the two batters that got on by BB count as earned runs even though the pitcher should of been out of the inning (hypothetically) after the 5th batter?
Hope not too much confusion…please help! Thanks
