9-0 is the official score for any forfeited major league game, regardless of the length of the contest held thus far. There have been 8 forfeited games since 1901, the most infamous being the last game played by the Washington Senators - fans stormed the field in the top of the ninth inning with two outs. The Senators were leading 7-5, but as a result of the umpires forcing them to forfeit, the official score for the record book was 9-0 Yankees.

The official score of any baseball game is one point per regulation inning for the non forfeiting team and zero for the forfeiting team. In MLB that results in 9-0, in high school (7 innings) the official score would be 7-0.

forfeit (baseball) In rare cases, baseball games are forfeited, and the score is recorded with the forfeiting team scoring no runs; their opponents are credited with the same number of runs as innings scheduled.
