In game 4 of the World Series , they faced a home game against the defending champs, Toronto Blue Jays , down in the ledger and desperately needing a win. With Veterans Stadium packed and the team seeking its second title, things got a bit crazy in a hurry. The Blue Jays took a quick lead in the first, only to be by the end of the second.
They retook their advantage in the third, but after a few busy innings, they entered the top of the eighth trailing and seemingly on the way to a series split that would turn it all into a best-of While the Jays had 6 extra-base hits in the game, they actually scored their 15 runs without hitting a homerun, while 15 of the 18 game starters counting the pitchers scored at least once.
The Phillies would actually stave elimination and win game 5 at home, but they would again blow a late-inning lead and lose game 6 in the memorable walk-off homerun from Joe Carter. By Pablo Figueroa on December 15, [Updated: Regular Season On a fateful Friday August 25, in what was then called Cubs Park, the Cubbies and Phillies managed to combine some terrible pitching and timely hitting to set the post record for runs scored in a single MLB game at 49 runs.
Both individual runs scored and runs batted in are heavily context-dependent; for a more sophisticated assessment of a player's contribution toward producing runs for his team see runs created. A pitcher is likewise assessed runs surrendered in his statistics, which differentiate between standard earned runs for which the pitcher is statistically assigned full responsibility and unearned runs scored due to fielding errors , which do not count in his personal statistics.
Specifically, if a fielding error occurs which affects the number of runs scored in an inning, the Official Scorer — the official in-game statistician — in order to determine how many of the runs should be classified as earned, will reconstruct the inning as if the error had not occurred. For example, with two outs, suppose a runner reaches base because of a fielding error, and then the next batter hits a two-run home run, and then the following batter then makes the third out, ending the inning.
If the inning is reconstructed without the error, and if that third batter, instead of reaching on an error, registered an out, the inning would have ended there without any runs scoring.
Thus, the two runs that did score will be classified as unearned, and will not count in the pitcher's personal statistics. If a pitching substitution occurs while a runner is on base, and that runner eventually scores a run, the pitcher who allowed the player to get on base is charged with the run even though he was no longer pitching when the run scored.
