What would've the call been?
Had our Wednesday pick up game yesterday. I sat that one out and decided to umpire for the boys. Now there was a situation but since no one appealed and it was 'just' a pick up game no call was made. SITUATION: Bases were loaded, 1 out, run #5 was on third. Batter hits single to left run scores but runner from 1st doesn't touch second and goes to dugout. What's the call playing in a 5 run maximum game and does that call change at all playing under 'catch up and go up by 5 runs' game rules?

Did the defense throw ball in and someone tag 2nd? If so you have out # 2 run from 3rd still scores 5th run so basically 1/2 inning over 5 runs for the hitting team.

Oz, since the runner on first didn’t touch second he would be out if the defense threw to second for the force, a dead ball appeal.or by going into the dugout area. Since that would make it two outs the run would count. Five runs in, change em up.
If the rule was you can go up by 5 runs the play would have the same result. If the team wasn’t up by five runs then theiir at bat would continue. You’d have runners at first and third with two outs.

Batter isn't credited with a single, but a fielder's choice and an RBI.
