Best Answer

In Little League Baseball, rules usually call for the game to end if the winning team is ahead by 10 runs after five innings. In some leagues, this margin may be as little as eight.

How much is a mercy in baseball?

The "mercy rule" is only used in some leagues. There is no mercy rule in the MLB. My local Little League had a rule that if one team was up by more than 10 after the 4th inning, the game would be over and the team with the lead wins. ---------- 15 after 3 innings, 10 after 4 innings, and 8 after 5 innings is also a commonly used "mercy rule" in some leagues.
