Counting runs correctly
We had an argument in one of the last games on Sunday involving how many runs were scored in an inning. The umpire had it wrong, but yet both scorers had the same number of batters in the innings, nine. That makes it easy. All you have to know is how many runners were left on base, and that was easy, too, because we had just walked a batter to load the bases. Just remember this formula:

Number of batters minus runners left on base, minus outs equals runs scored (9-3-3). In this case it was three, not four, and they finally changed it. Every umpire and manager should become familiar with this formula.

If you had been running things, you would have left the 4 runs on the board and you'd still be playing in extra innings instead of our 1-run win!
