The original pitcher is responisible for any runners left on base when he leaves; so yes he gets the earned runs.

It is obviously earned. The only way for a team to get an unearned run is if an error makes scoring the run possible, either by allowing the runner to advance or allowing the inning to extend beyond what would have been three outs. p.s. The fourth batter gets an RBI also.

Earned run average calculated in softball?

Earned runs are runs that are scored because of hits stolen bases. Un-earned runs are those where a runner gets on base because of an error and eventually scores. The earned run average (ERA) is calculated by taking the total number of earned runs scored against a pitcher and dividing that by the total number of innings that pitcher pitched. The lower the ERA the better the pitcher, usually.

Under most circumstances, this would be an earned run, provided he eventually scores. However, there are a few cases where it would not be an earned run. One example would be if the inning is extended by an error, no runs scored after that error are earned.

When is it not an earned run in baseball?

An earned run is a run that the pitcher is held responsible for so if the pitcher gives up a home run that 1 earned run you probably already knew that. Instead if the pitcher pitches and then the ball is hit into the outfield and a outfielder drops it and a run comes in that would not be an earned run.

What are the most important baseball averages?

I think this question is a matter of personal interpretation, however... For a pitcher, typically the ERA, or Earned Run Average, is the given the first look. The ERA corresponds to the number of earned runs given up based upon a complete nine inning game. Every run that scores though is not necessarily considered "earned". For example, if a batter reaches base on a fielding error, that base runner, if he scores, is not counted against the pitcher as an earned run. For a batter, typically the BA, or batting average, is given the most weight. Batting average is simply calculated by taking the number of hits divided by the number of at bats. Again, like the ERA, not every "appearance" is considered an at bat. As an example, if a batter walks, it is not counted as an at bat for that hitter.

How do you get the era of a pitcher?

The ERA (Earned Run Average) is calculated by dividing the number of earned runs the pitcher has allowed by his innings pitched, then multiplying that result by 9.

If a pitching change is made during an at-bat and the batter gets on base and later scores which pitcher is charged with the earned run?

Is a run scored after walking an earned run or un earned run?

Assume 3 players in a row hit singles, and the bases are loaded. The pitcher walks the batter and the first player scores. Since he hit a single, his is an earned run. Now imagine a different situation, where the first player got on base due to an error. Then the next two players hit singles and the bases are loaded. If the pitcher walks the 4th player, the 1st player scores but his is an unearned run. That is, the run is not counted against the pitcher since an error by someone else led to his being on base. Now imagine the next batter gets on due to an error and another run scored. This is the 2nd player, who had a single earler. His is an earned run. Every player on base could become an earned or unearned run, depending on how they got on base-- not how they eventually scored.

What is ERA?

ERA is Earned Run Average. An earned run is a run that is scored by a batter that reached base while a pitcher was on the mound, so long as the batter did not reach base on an error. Example A: If Pitcher A gives up a a single, then a home run, Pitcher A acquired 2 earned runs. Example B: If Pitcher B gives up a ground ball to the second basemen who mishandles the ball allowing the runner to reach first, and then Pitcher A gives up a home run, only 1 earned run is acquired. Example C: Pitcher C gives up a single and then is is yanked from the game. Pitcher D comes in for relief and gives up a home run. Pitcher C acquires 1 earned run for the runner on first, and Pitcher D acquires an earned run for the batter that hit the home run. Earned Run Average is calculated by determining how many earned runs a pitcher averages over nine innings. Each full inning is counted as one. If a starting pitcher is pulled from the mound with one out in the seventh inning, he pitched 6 full innings plus one third of an inning = 6 1/3 innings (this is written 6.1 innings). Lets say he gave up 4 earned runs this outing: Take 4 earned runs and divide by 6 1/3 innings and multiply by 9 innings in a game = an ERA of 5.68. Over the course of a season the numbers will get larger. In 2002, Greg Maddux gave up 58 earned runs while pitching 199.1 innings. Take 58 earned runs and divide by 199 1/3 and then multiply by 9 innings in a game = 2.62 ERA.

1st batter reaches on an error the next two batters are outs the next batter hits a home run does that run count against the pitcher?

No. Rule 10.16 states, in part: "In determining earned runs, the official scorer shall reconstruct the inning without the errors (which exclude catcher's interference) and passed balls, giving the benefit of the doubt always to the pitcher in determining which bases would have been reached by runners had there been errorless play."

What is the meaning of era for a pitcher?

That's the pitcher's Earned Run Average, i. e., the number of earned runs the pitcher allows per nine inning. To arrive at the ERA, take the number of earned runs, multiply by 9 and divide by the number of innings pitched.
