It depends, the other runners can all score once the batter touches first base. if they all touch home than 3 runs are scored regardless of what the batter does next. So as long as the winning run crosses the plate the game is over. If the batter stops at first he is credited with a single, and in this case 3 RBIs

In the game of baseball if you hit a home run is it possible to not score?

How is an out recorded if you hit a home run and miss home plate?

On a Home Run, the runner is still required to touch all bases, even if he is entitled a run. If he misses any base, including Home Plate, and makes no attempt to return to the base to touch it, he will be declared Out and his run does not score. If other runners are also running and touch all of the bases, their runs will score. If there are two outs with runners on, only the runners who crossed the plate before his run would score.

In baseball what is a grand slam?

In baseball terminology, a grand slam is a home run hit when the bases are "loaded". Meaning that the home run is hit with runners on 1st, 2nd & 3rd base. The result is that 4 runs are scored. A home run normally occurs when a baseball is hit into the grandstands in fair territory. An "inside the park" home run occurs when the hitter can run all the way from home plate then around the bases and ends up back on home plate. It is not a home run if an error allows the hitter to run all the bases.
