A run that the pitcher has given up. Unearned runs are caused by errors. Anything else that scores that isn't the result of a error, is a earned run. Walks, hits, sacrifices, balks, etc. are all examples of what can cause a earned run.

if the run was reached or scored because of an error, then it is unearned, any other instance, it is earned


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.



A hurler is a slang term for a pitcher in baseball. ERA stands for Earned Run Average and is a statistic for pitchers that shows the number of 'earned' runs a pitcher allows for every nine innings. An earned run is a run that is scored without the help of an error or passed ball. One might think that the earned run average of a pitcher is similar to that of the batting average of a hitter.


An unearned run is a run earned through an error by the opposing team. This could be an error or a passed ball.



ERA stands for a pitcher's earned run average.


ERA is the average number of earned runs a pitcher allows per nine innings pitched.


Two that come immediately to mind are error and earned run.


An ER is an earned run. An earned run is a run that scored without the fielders making any errors. If the run scores because of an error by a fielder, the run is just classified as a R (run) and does not harm the pitchers ERA (average amount of runs allowed per nine innings)


A run scored without the aid of an error, used in computing earned run averages.


An ER is an Earned Run, a run for which the pitcher is considered responsible, as opposed to an Unearned Run, which involves an error (or passed ball) by one of the fielders.


Earned run average(ERA), wins and losses, walks and strikeouts.


ERA is known as earned run average, a stat used for pitchers. The lower the number, the better he is.


Earned runs allowed (all runs given up not due to a fielding error) multiplied by 9 , then divided by innings pitched.


No...a fielding error that allows the runner to get on base and that runner scores is not an earned run and does not count against earned run average.


E.R.A. stands for Earned Run Average. It is the average earned runs scored upon a pitcher per nine innings of work. It is called Earned because if a fielder makes an error allowing a runner to advance a base and that runner eventually scores, that run will not be charged to the pitcher's E.R.A.


In baseball, an earned run is any run for which the pitcher is held accountable (i.e. the run did not score as a result of a fielding error or a passed ball).Now, if the pitcher threw 4 wild pitches (a much more likely scenario) it would be an earned run.I like booooobies and pigs


only one earned run and that's the home run, the other runs arent his fault but the home run is.


it depends. If the bases were loaded and a batter walked, that would effect the earned run average. But if a batter walked but it did not effect the score, it would not effect the pitcher's earned run average.


If a pitcher walks a batter with the base loaded -- thus permitting a run to score -- that run is counted as "earned" run, just as if the batter had gotten a hit.


It depends on how the runner who scored reached base. If the runner was on by way of an error, the run would be UNearned if he scores on a walk.



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.


The Baltimore Orioles had a league-high team earned run average of 5.15.
