If a player gets on base and scores on an error is that an unearned run?

Unearned Runs
by: Coach Dan


Yes, that run would be scored as an unearned run. In edition, if that error occurred with two outs, all subsequent runs would also be scored as unearned runs. So, for instance, if you have tow outs and a runner on third and the ball is hit in the infield and the player throws the ball away allowing the run to score, it is an unearned run. Let's say that a circus inning breaks out and five more runs score with the next seven players getting hits, they are also unearned runs because the pitcher should have been out of the inning when the original error occurred.

Hope this helps.
