Well in Baseball you score runs. There is many ways you can score a run. Here are some ways: 1.) Homerun, 2.) A triple and then someone hits a single/double/homerun/sac fly, 3.) Two doubles in a row, 4.) A single and then a triple or homerun, and 5.) A batter gets a triple and then the pitcher throws a wild pitch and the runner scores.

the technical answer is to have a runner or a batter/runner touch home plate safely after touching all 3 bases in order 1st 2nd 3rd than touch home before 3 outs are recorded

In the scorebook, the notation is 'E' followed by the number of the fielder who made the error (1-pitcher, 2-catcher, 3-first baseman, 4-second baseman, 5-third baseman, 6 shortstop). The batter is charged with an at bat unless the error came on a play where the batter was attempting a sacrifice bunt.

You score in baseball by advancing runners around the bases (first, second, third and home). Once a runner touches home plate without being tagged out, this is counted as a run. Each runner that crosses home plate counts as one more run.

If the scorer believes that the runner would have been safe either way no error is awarded if the runner does not advance further. If the runner would have been out then the scorer gives the error to either the fielder or the catcher depending on the throw.

It doesn't count unless all the bases are touched. They would have to go back. So you can't score the run if a base is missed.

I am unsure in the scorebook, however the runner is out and the batter is oddly awarded a base hit.

The batter is credited with a single. The runner is out and play is dead.

### If a runner does not touch third base but touches home are they out or does the run count?

It depends. If the runner hit a home run, and missed third he would be sent back to second base. If the runner was on second base to start and missed third he would be out. However, even if the umpire sees a runner miss a base the runner is not penalized unless the opposing team appeals.

### Can a player appeal any base?

A defensive player can appeal to the umpire that a runner missed touching any base.

### Can a runner slide for the first score of the game?

Yes, a runner may slide into any base at any time.

### Is it possible to hit a sac fly when there is only one runner on first base?

No. For it to be a sacrifice fly, a runner must score.

### Can a runner score on a fly ball if the other runner doesn't?

Sure. The runner on 3rd base can tag up and score. The runner on 2nd may not even be able to advance to 3rd base, especially if the fly ball is to left field. To further clarify..a base runner may not pass another base runner who is ahead of him..so, if your question means can a runner on 2nd or 1st, tag up and score if the runner on third doesn't, the simple answer is no...however, in a rare case they could. Let's assume that the runner on third tags up, but is thrown out at home and it is not the 3rd out of the inning, then the catcher either throws the ball away, or otherwise loses the ball, the other runner or runners may then advance and score. The batter, though, is not credited with a Sacrifice Fly, nor an RBI.

### If Bases are loaded and batter grounds out to first base and 3 rd base makes it home before first base tags the base does run count?

If there are less than 2 outs, the runner from 3B would score on the play.However, if there are 2 outs, the runner on 3B would not score, because the third out was a force out. If the third out is a force out, at any base, no run would score.
