Protest on tag

Runner on 2nd and 3rd 1 out. Fly ball to left and caught tag from 3rd and 2nd safe at home and 3rd . Other team protested tag from 2nd and runner from 2nd was called out for leaving early. Question is does the run still count?

Count Runs on an Appeal Play?
by: Dan

Thank you for your question. Based on the section I see, the run would count. Here is what I found.

Under Rule 12 (Use of ASA Playing Rules) 1 (Appeals) K Tag-ups

If the runner leaves too soon on a caught fly ball and returns in an attempt to retag, this is considered a time play and not a force out. If the appeal is the third out, all runs scored by runners in advance of the appealed runner and scored ahead of the legal appeal count.
