Scoring Question


Scoring Question

In the game above why doesn't Gardner get an RBI - Leadoff man Triples, he grounds to 2B who boots it, but the run would have scored regardless.

Re: Scoring Question

There is never an RBI on an error. It could have been a hit and run with none or one out and if its an error, no rbi.

Re: Re: Scoring Question

That's not true Jim see below

credit one RBI if with the bases loaded, the batter is awarded first base without hitting the ball (i.e., via a walk, hit by pitch or catcher’s interference )

credit the batter with RBIs if an error is made on a play, but the run(s) would have scored anyways without the error (e.g., runner on 3rd nobody out and infield playing back. Hitter grounds to shortstop who throws to 1st base conceding the run. The throw is wild and batter ends up on 2nd. Give the batter a reach on error, and the RBI). Note that the number of outs is important in these types of situations. If there were already 2 outs, then no RBI, as the run would not have scored without the error.

This is an exact example except that the ball was grounded to 2B - 5th Inning so Infield is Back, does not come in until the 8th inning in PC - and there were no outs

Re: Scoring Question

Yeah that's an RBI. I think we've seen this with PC before where it doesn't assume run score and just cancels RBI because of error.
