Anyway, it happened to Millwood tonight against the Yanks. First Giambi hits a BS homer that was actually caught against the wall that then popped UP and OVER the fence (it would have hit the wall otherwise) and then he allows a run to score on a wild pitch that also advances a runner, and then he scores. It ain't his night.
A wild pitch is the pitcher's own fault and the result of the play is consider earned.

A passed ball is not an error on the catcher and not scored as such. However, for the purposes of determining earned vs unearned runs for the pitcher, it is treated as an error.

E.g. if a runner goes to 2nd on a PB with 2 outs and scores on a single, then the 3rd out - unearned run. If, instead, next guy hits a HR, then 3rd out - earned run (as he'd have scored with or without the PB).
