Best Answer

Yes, in Japan. In American professional sports, no, a game is not complete if both teams have the same number of runs.

AnswerYes, if a game is called off due to weather, or a power outage, or something like that. If the game is important to a pennant race, it can be made up, but if not, it would be left as a tie. The stats would still count, though.

As of February 2007 the rules committee has made the following changes to the rules in the MLB as it pertains to games ending in ties.

"Beginning this season, when a game is tied in the bottom of the fifth inning and is called because of weather, it will be suspended and resumed before the next scheduled game between the teams at the same ballpark.

If there are no more games between the teams at the same stadium, the game will be resumed when the teams meet at the visitor's ballpark.

If it is the final scheduled game between the teams, it will be replayed if it is needed to determine a postseason berth."

Has an American baseball game ended in a tie 0-0?

Yes, baseball games can end in a tie. After the 5th inning a baseball game is considered a complete game. If weather causes a game to end or it is getting far too late in the evening to finish, the game will end. If it is tied, they will replay the game at another time, usually added to a later game's schedule, turning that day's event into a double-header.

How does a tie baseball game end?

Under normal circumstances, there are no ties in baseball. if the score is tied after a full 9 innings, then the game will continue until a team scores a run and that inning is completed. innings beyond the 9th inning are known as "extra innings" (there is no term "overtime" in baseball). if it's the visting team that scores, then the home team will get one last at bat to try and tie or win the game. if it's the home team that scores, then the game is automatically over, the home team is the winner and it's known as a "walk off". the only games that can end in a tie are pre-season games, in 2002 the all-star game ended in a tie in the 11th inning (due to the commissioner of baseball declaring a tie after all the pitchers had been used).

Can a world cup soccer game end in a tie?

Depends. If the game is one of the first-round games going for points, then the game can end in a tie. If the game is an elimination game where a loss counts as elimination, a tie is not allowed. Instead, if a tie is present at the end of a 90-minute regulation game, an extra 30 minutes are played. If the tie remains after another 30 minutes, a penalty-kick shootout takes place. The penalty-kick shootout will continue until a winner is declared.
