If the player gets to second base on his hit, it is a double.

If a player is on first base and goes to second base on a pitch during another player's at bat, it is called stealing second base.

If a player is on first base and goes to second base on another players hit, walk, ground out, etc., it is called being advanced to second base.

What are two outs in once baseball game?

When the defensive team in baseball, gets two players out in one play, it is called a double play. This usually occurs when the ball is hit between the second and third base. The short stop between the second and third base throws the ball to the second baseman, who gets the runner from first base out. Then the second baseman throws the ball to the first baseman, who gets the hitter out. There are other ways that a double play can occur, however, this is the most common way.
