Earned Runs

Postby BronxBomber2007 » Tue May 08, 2007 12:04 am

In the event of an error with 2 outs that would have ended the inning....can a pitcher be charged with runs that are scored after that error is committed? If so, can you explain? Thank you

This happened to Lacky earlier this season. The catcher dropped a pop up with two outs that should have ended the inning. A couple of pitches later the hitter went deep. Unearned HR !+)

Well this was in concern to Oliver Perez....there were two outs and back to back errors were committed that would have ended the inning....well this led to a jailbreak in which the Giants scored 7 runs....Well i noticed that he was credited with 6 earned runs for around 2 innings after this...but they have since changed it back to 2 earned runs. I thought I was right in that if an error extends an inning...the runs that are on base or thereafter dont count against a pitcher's era. thanks again

Were you looking on Yahoo? Sometimes they are a little slow in updating earned runs, compared to MLB GameDay or Sportsline scoring.

That's the utility of WHIP. If a pitcher gets shelled after an error extended an inning, ERA won't be affected but WHIP surely will.
