Bob asked: The team had two outs with the bases loaded. The batter hits a ground ball between the short stop and third that hits the runner heading to third. How does the score keeper score the batter and how does he score the runner who was hit by the ball?

Rick answered: Bob, thank you for your question.

The runner is scored as a Put out, the put out credited to the closest infielder at the time he was hit, in this case probably the third baseman or the shortstop.

The runner being hit is the third out of the inning, the ball becomes dead.

The batter is scored as a fielders choice.

Yours in baseball,

The batter is scored as having made a hit, not a fielder's choice.
