Homerun, R1 does not touch home. (answered)

Postby Mgirwin » Fri Apr 21, 2017 10:55 am

Bases loaded. Batter hits a homerun. R3 and R2 touch home, R1 never touches home. Batter touches home plate and umpire calls R1 out. The batter is safe so it is still a homerun but only 3 runs score. Not sure how to score this. Soon as you touch homerun, the bases are cleared and on to the next batter.

Assuming less than 2 outs. when batter hit the ball (i.e. R1 is NOT out 3)

In iScore, you are correct, when you hit HOME RUN, iscore automatically advances amd scores all runners and does not give you a natural way to declare one out and run not scored. As this is such a rare situation, iScore does not have a natural way to record the needed variation... but it does have ways to handle ..

two ways i can think of off the top of my head, pro/con tradeoffs to each. ( I think #2 may be what i would do if faced w situation real time)

    1) You can use the in Play > Home Run Button. then use "Misc > Adjust Score" to remove a run from the scoreboard, and add an out. You would also want to add a note to explain what happened. Post game, you would want to manually override stats to a) reduce Batter RBI by 1, and b) reduce R1 R (Runs Scored) by 1.


    2) you can enter a triple, and then post game, manually over ride stats to convert triple to home run. Example..
    batter > in play> triple, >>
    >> What happen to R3? > Safe > home > Advance by batter (aka RBI) >
    >> what happen to R2 ? > Safe > home > advance by batter (aka RBI2) >
    >> What happen to r1? > out > home > missed base >
    >> What happen to Batter ? Safe > home > advance by batter (aka RBI3)
    You would Also want to add a note to explain what happen and also give yourself a reminder to change triple to HR in post game records .

both methods involve adjusting stats manually post game - If you need a primer on that - see this FAQ http://iscoreforum.com/baseball/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3115

(by MLB rule set, bases loaded, less than 2 outs, successful appeal of R1 missed bag, = 3 run homer . . if loaded and 2 outs, successful appeal of R1 missed bag, = 2RBI and home run would be removed - ouch)
