My goodness, that’s why you play all 9 innings. (Reds vs. Braves)


O's are Legends

Recommended Posts

The Braves were down 9-3 in the bottom of the 9th to the Reds..

…and they scored 7 to win. Brooks Conrad finished the comeback with a pinch hit grand slam off of Francisco Cordero. Laynce Nix went up to rob the home run but the ball bounced off his glove and over the fence. Conrad thought the ball was caught, stopped running and turned around in frustration after rounding first only to see all his teammates jumping up and down in celebration.

Just curious, what's the baserunning rule for homeruns? I remember from the O's stupidity that if one baserunner passes another, then it's an out. But what about going out of the baseline/starting to walk away?

I don't think he left. He rounded first, and I'm pretty sure he wasn't even past first base when he realized.

Cool to see an almost-Chris Hoiles situation. Only one out and a 2-2 count, but pretty darn close.
