You can just run home on a play, steal home, tag up, or be walked home (If the pitcher walks someone on loaded bases)

How many ways can a runner score from third base with two outs?


When a batter hits a grand slam how many runs score?

4 Runs score. The Batter, The runner on 1st, The Runner on 2nd and the runner on 3rd.

How many runs would score if a batter hits a grand slam but the runner from second base is called out on an appeal for missing third base?

Depends on how many outs there when the home run is hit. MLB Rule 7.12 is pretty clear: "Unless two are out, the status of a following runner is not affected by a preceding runners failure to touch or retouch a base. If, upon appeal, the preceding runner is the third out, no runners following him shall score." Thus, if there are fewer than two outs, then this out caused by the base runner would eliminate HIS run, but not that of subsequent runners. If there are two outs, then this base runner's out would not only eliminate his own run, but also those the of the base runners that follow him. However, the runner who touched home plate BEFORE this out is called -- the one who was on third base when the home run was hit -- would be recorded as having scored a run. If the score was tied (let's say 1-1) with two outs in the bottom of the 9th when the home run was hit, and the player on second ran to the dugout to celebrate after seeing a home run was hit to win the game, that player would be called out, but the final result would still be a win for his team, at a score of 2-1 instead of 5-1. The batter would get credit for a single and one RBI.

How many ways to score from second base?

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.

How many ways can a runner make an out at third base?

How do scouts determine if a base runner is fast?

If you ever pay close attention to the base coaches, you'll notice that many of them hold a stopwatch. They do exactly what the scouts do. They time the runners. This helps the base coach determine whether or not it's safe to give the runner the sign to steal or if he can wave him around 3rd to score. The scouts, of course, use their stopwatches strictly to see how long it takes a runner to get from base to base.

How many different ways can a runner score from third base?

I heard there are some 60 some odd ways to score from third and 40 some odd ways to score from second. Here are a few I remember.1. A hit2. An error3. A passed ball4. A wild pitch5. A balk6. Bases loaded and a Walk7. Sac fly8. Squeeze9. Steal10. Drop third strike and they attempt to put out the runner at firstThere is ten real answers for you. It's easy to come up with more if you really think about it.Hall of Fame second baseman Joe Morgan has pointed out that there are 9 ways a runner can score from 3rd base with less than two outs. These would apply whether or not any other bases were occupied. I believe this is Joe's Ninefold Base Path:1. a hit2. a sacrifice hit (bunt or "squeeze" play)3. a sacrifice fly4. an error (including an error on a batted ball, an error in attemptingto pick the runner off base, the batter reaching base on a dropped thirdstrike, the catcher's wild throw attempting to catch another runner stealing)5. a fielder's choice (including an ordinary groundout, a batter being put outat first on a dropped 3rd strike, the other runner caught stealing as partof a double steal, "the defensive team's indifference")6. a balk by the pitcher7. a wild pitch8. a passed ball by the catcher9. a stolen base (i.e., steal of home base)These are the 9 possible scoring decisions to account for the runner's advance in the official scorer's report.

How many possible ways can you get to home from third base and what are they?

Just milling though this in my mind, I can think of ten: Sacrifice fly Fielder's choice Base hit Wild pitch Passed ball Steal of home Squeeze bunt Error on a fielder (throwing or fielding) Ground out Balk by pitcher Sounds right to me. However, in this situation, a groundout IS a fielder's choice. A Balk, Single, Double(regular or ground rule), Triple, Home Run, Fielder's Choice, Sacrafice Fly, Sacrafice Bunt, Error (over throw and bobble), Wild Pitch, Passed Ball, Stolen Base (straight steal and/or drop 3rd strike), Walk with the bases loaded, Catchers Obstruction with the bases loaded, Hit by Pitch with the bases loaded... 15 ways I can think of (going by the way you'd score the run scoring).

How many runs in baseball is a home run with 1 runner on base?

2 home runs ==== There are two runs that score. One run is the person on base and the second run is the person who hit the home run.

How many ways can a runner score from third base?

Scoring from Third BaseOnly one way -- by crossing home plate. Great answer! baseballGuru says:Other than the obvious, and Joe Morgan's 9 ways. We have come up with a few more.:1. wild pitch2. passed ball3. hit by pitch4. sac fly5. sac bunt6. hit7. balk8. catchers interference9. strike out, dropped ball by catcher, runner safe at first10. fielder's choice11. fielder's interference, runner on third running home12. wild throw to third pick off attempt13. error14. infield fly rule, runner advances at own peril15. fan interference, usually home run type ball16. walk17. steal home18. umpire's interferenceAnswer #3 is only correct if it is the batter that is hit by a pitch. Then the runner at 3rd is forced home since the hit batter takes the place of the runner at 1st and forces the other runners to move up one base.
