Does run score?
Batter-runner Out At First Base For Third Out, Run Does Not Score.
Anonymous asked: Bases loaded, two out, tie score ,bottom of ninth.
Slow roller hit down third.
Third baseman tosses ball to home plate and runner is safe.
Catcher then throws to first base and ball gets there before the runner does.
Does the run score to end game or does the out at first count to end inning in a tie?
