If the third out is a force play of any kind, then no runs score.

EXAMPLE: runners on first and third. Batter lays down a perfect bunt towards third base. Man on third comes home, man on first slips while running to second. Runner on third touches home well before third baseman fires the ball to second in time to make a force out. No runs scored.

If a runner touches home plate before a TAG OUT, however, the run scores, even if that tag out was the third out.

EXAMPLE: Same situation, but this time the runner going to second base gets there before there is a force play BUT over-runs second base and is tagged out. Inning is over but the run scores.

What is wrong with making the first or third out at third base?

You do not want to make the 1st out at third because had the runner stayed at second, he could score a run without the benefit of another hit. The next two batters could advance him any number of ways. You do not want to make the third out at third base as with two outs, there is rarely a benefit to being on third as oppossed to second, where one could score on an outfield single.
