Ed Asked: The bases are loaded and there are two outs.


Batter hits a triple but misses second base.

A legal appeal is made by the defense.


How many runs score? 0, 2 or 3?


Rick answered: Ed, thank you for your question.

Since the batter touched first base prior to missing second base, all three runners should score.

The third out was made on appeal and a dead ball.

Had the batter missed first base, then the third out would have negated all other actions, as the batter must touch first base safely, with two outs, for the runs to count.

Yours in baseball,

Rick
