Wakefield charged with 2nd earned run?

Postby marinerfan » Fri May 07, 2004 8:11 pm

I noticed in my fantasy box score he has been charged with 2 earned runs, but I'm not sure why. The second run scored on an error as a result of a run down. Anyone know why this isn't an unearned run? Thanks!

Can somebody tell me what happened their? I see that Beltran stole second, but then was caught stealing at second. What? Then I see that the Royals scored, and this is what yahoo said about the scoring play: "D. Relaford caught stealing." What?

Wakefield did a fake move to third and then threw to first. Beltran (on first) was fooled and they got him in a run down. But then Boston threw it away and Beltran was safe at second and the runner on third came home.

The official scorer would have ruled that Relaford would have scored no matter the error. Beltran is scored as being picked off and if he had came around to score would have been unearned.

Tavish, thanks for the reply, but I don't agree with the official scoring one bit. Sigh, oh well.
