Major League Baseball consists of 9 innings, with each team alternating their at-bat. The Visiting team bats first, which is the top of the inning, and continues batting until 3 Outs have been recorded. The Home team then bats, which is the bottom of the inning, and continues until 3 Outs have been recorded. Then the Visiting team would bat again in the top of the second inning, and the game would continue that way until 9 innings have been played, or 8-1/2 innings if the Home team is ahead after the Visiting team has completed their at-bat in the top of the 8th inning.
the top of the inning is the first three outs in an inning. an inning has a total of six outs, three outs for each team. each team takes as many at-bats as they can get before they get three outs in their half of the inning. then the other team gets at-bats until they get three outs. after that, the inning is over.
The home team gets "home field advantage." In Baseball, the visiting team bats first and the home team bats last.
The advantage to batting last is that the visiting team does not get another chance to take the lead if the home team is ahead after the visiting team has batted in the ninth inning, or if the home team takes the lead during its turn at bat in the ninth inning.
The home team always gets the last chance to tie or win the game in the ninth inning or extra innings.
The "top" of the inning refers to the visiting team being at bat. The "bottom" of the inning refers to the home team being at bat.
The top half of the inning is when the visiting team is batting. When the home team is batting, that is called the bottom half of the inning.
The second half of the inning is called the bottom of the ________(insert inning here). For example: bottom of the 3rd.
In MLB, half way through a baseball game is top of the fifth. There is no half game out to strike ratio but half of a baseball game is top 5.
First half is called the top and the second half is called the bottom
There are a total of 6 outs per inning... 3 for the Visiting team (top half of the inning)... and 3 for the Home team (bottom half of the inning).
The home team bats in the bottom of the inning.

Bottom is the preposition word Phrase would be bottom of the ninth inning i think
With respects to the sport of baseball (which I believe is the root of your question), the term "top of the fifth" simply refers to the first half of the fifth inning during which the visiting team has the opportunity to bat. After the visiting team cycles through their allotted three outs, the inning enters the bottom of the inning. Each inning has both a "top" and "bottom" half. The actual term "top" or "bottom" of an inning stems from the placement of the score on either the top or bottom section of a scoreboard or scorecard.
On a scoreboard, the visitor's inning by inning score is shown above the home team's score. So the visitor's score is on the top and the home team's is on the bottom.
Six, Three in the top of the inning and three at the bottom
The situation that you describe is not possible because a pitcher who is starting at home would pitch the top of the inning, not the bottom. The home team always plays defense in the top of an inning and offense in the bottom of an inning. If the score is 0-0 in the top of the seventh and the team scores in the top of the seventh and does not give up the lead, the pitcher who was in the lineup in the bottom of the sixth when the final out was recorded will be awarded the win regardless of whether they pitch the bottom of the seventh.
That is when the home team is batting in the ninth inning. If the home team is ahead after the visiting team makes its three outs in the 'top' of the ninth (their turn to bat in the ninth inning) there is no bottom of the ninth because the game is over and the home team has won. If the home team is tied or behind the visiting team after the visiting team makes their three outs in the ninth inning, the home team comes to bat and it is called 'batting in the bottom of the ninth inning'.
Because some people forget that an inning consists of the top AND bottom of the inning. They just think of their portion.
The inning is the term of service in badminton.
In a half inning, the top or bottom inning (away or home team respectively) there are 3 outs. In a full inning there are 6 outs.
