You can't - only three outs. BUT you can have FOUR strikeouts in one inning. If the catcher drops the ball, the runner can go to first base, but no out is scored.

0-0 1 Out, runners on 2nd and 3rd

Fly ball

The runners both run home (2-0)

The ball is caught (2nd out)

The defender tags 2nd base (3rd out, score is now 1-0)

• At this point, the inning is over. The defense may run off the field and the score will remain 1-0, OR they can tag 3rd base to record the 4th out and the score will be 0-0

Actually, from what you're saying, neither runner that scored tagged up. So when the outfielder caught the ball for the 2nd out, then threw it to second for the third out, the inning was over. The run does not count because the other runner never tagged up.

in other words, the first poster was right. It is impossible to have four OUTS in an inning.

the answer above is correct. the fourth out will only come into play if the defensive team appeals the runner from third not tagging up. if they don't then the run does count. if they do appeal the play the runner is out (the fourth out) and the run does not count

if on one of the strike outs the catcher drops the ball and the batter reaches first base safely the out does not count

Half of one-half is one-fourth, or one quarter (1/4). 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4

"half the half" is one quarter. One quarter = 1/4 One and a half = 11/2 = 3/2 One quarter of 1 and a half = 1/4 x 3/2 = 3/8 So, half the half of one and a half = three eighths

While logic would lead us to believe that the most strikeouts a pitcher can get in one inning is 3, it's not true. 52 pitchers have recorded 4 strike outs in one inning. How does this happen? If a batter with 2 strikes swings and misses on strike three, but the catcher doesn't field it cleanly, he can run to 1B. It's not one of the three outs for the inning, but, it is a strikeout for the pitcher. No one has recorded more than 4 strikeouts in one inning, although it is possible. The most recent pitcher to accomplish this feat is Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners. He struck out four batters on June 3rd, 2010. For a complete list of all major league pitchers who have struck out 4 batters, see Related Links, below.

one quarterhalf = 1/2 = 2/43/4 - 2/4 = 1/4

One and one half divided by two thirds = 9/4, or 2 and 1/4

3/2 x 1/2 = 3/4One and a half = 11/2 = 3/2Half of that = 1/2 * 3/2 = 3/4
