With runners on 1B and 3B with one out, the batter hits a fly ball to left field. The 3B runner tags up and runs home, the 1B runner leaves 1B on the fly ball and has to run back to 1B. The throw bears the 1B runner back to 1B and he is declared out. However the runner from 3B scores before the runner at 1B is out. Does the run count?

YES Run scores on this "timing play" ... Getting put out while returning to tag up is NOT a force play that would negate the run ...

DRB22 ... It's impossible to be forced out returning to a base ... A force out occurs ONLY when being required ("forced") to advance to the next base ... The play that Randall described is actually a "Live Ball Appeal", which is a "timing play" as it relates to the runner from third base scoring ...
