PLAY BALL: Game 1, second inning


Mudville Nine lead 4-1

Mudville Nine at bat

#23 Bump Wills: single (runner on first, no outs)
#24 Don Money: fly out (runner on first, one out)
#25 Jon Matlack: K (runner on first, two outs)
#26 Rich Hebner: foul out (three outs)

0 runs on 1 hit and 0 walks. Mudville Nine lead 4-1

New York Knights at bat

#27 Geoff Zahn: single (runner on 1st, no outs)
#28 Ed Ott: BB (runners on 1st and 2nd, no outs)
#29 Bob Lacey: ground out (runner on 3rd, two outs)

(Note: I've elected to have a ground out with a runner on first and less than 2 outs result in a GIDP, and also elected to have such a GIDP advance any runner on 2B or 3B one base.)

#30 George Hendrick: BB (runners on 1st and 3rd, two outs)
#31 Glenn Abbott: single (one run scores, runners on 1st and 2nd, two outs)

(Note: here is another discretionary rule. Some would play that a single would load the bases. If there had been runners on 1st and 2nd, I would say a single results in bases loaded. With a runner on third, however, I will have that guy score.)

#32 Garry Templeton: HR (three runs score, bases empty, two outs)
#33 Dave Lemanczyc: fly out (three outs)

4 runs on 3 hit and 2 walks. New York Knights lead 5-4

I'm glad I'm not the only one that had to adjust rules during these types of games!

Whose pitching?

You may need to look at the baserunners for your rules. For example, when Glenn Abbott singled, that was Too Hot Ed Ott on 3rd. For him to have scored from 3rd on a single, it must have been one of those in the gaps. I'm sure the 3rd base coach would have gotten quite the chewing had Ott been thrown out when Templeton comes up with the homer.
