If a pin stands back up or is moved out of place, then it is not a strike. The pin must be bowled where it is standing. If the pin is out of range for the rack to pick it up and the sweep knocks it over, the pin is placed back in its original position. If the pin is out of place for the rack to pick up and the sweep does not knock it over, the pin must be shot at where it stands.
