You can score from second base several ways. First, you can score on a single if it is hit far enough. You can also score on an error. You can steal third and make it home on a bunt or a hit. You can reach home from second base with a sacrifice hit, or an extra base hit by the batter.

Six Seeing that there are 8 ways to reach including a hit, I would say 7! Errors don't count as hits.

Wrong. A player can also reach first base by fielder's choice. There are actually 12 ways for a batter to reach first base. They are listed in Rules 6.08 and 6.09 of the Official Baseball Rules. Many of those listed in Rule 6.09 involve base hits, so if Hits is one way, there are really only 7 ways to reach first: 1. Base hit, including home runs, ground rule doubles, etc. 2. Base on Balls 3. Hit by pitched ball 4. Fielder's error 5. Fielder's interferrance (including catcher interferrance) 6. Strike out followed by passed ball or wild pitch 7. Batted ball that passes a fielder and hits an Umpire.
