1 out, runners at 1st and 2nd. a passed ball allows them both to advance a base each, so 2nd and 3rd now.
a base hit allows 1 run to score. runners now at 1st and 3rd, 1 out. then a double play ends the inning.

can the official scorer make the decision that a run would/would not have scored from 2nd base on a single to the OF?
How does that work?

I think you have to treat the passed ball as an error, so would the run have scored from second absent the error, as you say?

The official scorer has to give the benefit of the doubt to the pitcher, so they shouldn't ever assume a runner from 2nd would have scored on a single.

Arroyo apparently just sucks against the Pirates... and Charlie Morton is a beast.

If this is 80% of Jake Peavy, I don't think the league is ready to see 100%. :-°
