Earned. Unearned runs only apply to cases where an error allows a runner to score where they otherwise would not have.

It depends on how the runner who scored reached base. If the runner was on by way of an error, the run would be UNearned if he scores on a walk.

If a pitcher walks four batters in a row and gives up one run then he strikes out three batters in a row is that one run counted as an earned or unearned run?

It is obviously earned. The only way for a team to get an unearned run is if an error makes scoring the run possible, either by allowing the runner to advance or allowing the inning to extend beyond what would have been three outs. p.s. The fourth batter gets an RBI also.

If someone hits a triple and then the pitcher balks is that an earned run?

the run is unearned unless the runner would have later scored anyway

If an error is committed in the inning and the run scores later in the inning is it an unearned run?

Not necessarily. Simply add up any combination of outs and errors totaling three. Any runs scoring after that point would be unearned runs. Above is true to an extent: The scorer usually determines whether the run would have scored even without the error. (Ex. Runner on second - pickoff attempt by catcher goes into centre field. Runner advances to 3rd and catcher is charged with an error. Next pitch is hit for a double. Scorer notes that runner would have scored from 2nd regardless of the error and the run is earned) In the case of a runner reaching base due to an error, then the run is unearned if he comes in to score as he should not have been on base in the first place. If the second baseman commits an error on the leadoff batter allowing him to reach 1st and the very next batter hits a homerun, it is 1 earned and 1 unearned run, and there are still 0 outs.

Runner on third scores on a passed ball is the run earned or unearned?

it's a unearned run and the error would go to the pitcher if it's a wild pitch or the catcher if it's a past ball. This isn't necessarily true. The official scorekeeper will then see how the rest of the inning plays out. If the hitter ends up getting a single then is still charged as an earned run. If there were 0 outs to start, then the 3rd hitter up could get a hit that would have driven the run in and it's still an earned run, else it's unearned.

What is era in baseball?

E.R.A. stands for Earned Run Average. It is the average earned runs scored upon a pitcher per nine innings of work. It is called Earned because if a fielder makes an error allowing a runner to advance a base and that runner eventually scores, that run will not be charged to the pitcher's E.R.A.

Is a wild pitch that advances the runner to second and eventually scores an unearned run?

A wild pitch is considered part of pitching, and therefore a wild pitch contributing to a run does not make that run unearned. Had the runner advanced on a passed ball, or on an error on the pitcher, the run would be unearned, assuming that the run would not have scored anyway had the inning played out the way it did (this sometimes involves a judgment call by the official scorer). For example, if the runner reached second on a passed ball, scored on a single, and there were no further hits in the inning, the run would be unearned. However if after reaching second on the passed ball there were a pair of singles, or an extra base hit, the run probably would be scored as an earned run.
