can a walk off homer be more than one run?
(Morro Bay, CA)
Dave asked: Bottom of the ninth,score tied, two men on and the batter hits a home run.
Is it scored as just one run or three runs?

Rick answered: Dave, thank you for your question.
If an over the fence home run is hit, all runs score before the game is terminated.
With a walk off base hit, the game is terminated when the batter-runner touches first base safely, and the winning run has crossed the plate.
Yours in baseball,
