Quiz Answers: 1.

Situation – Runners on first and second. Batter hits an infield fly – batter out. Runner on first passes the runner on second – 2 outs. Ball comes down and hits the runner from second – third out!

2.

Eleven – Batter comes up with two outs and a runner on base. The count goes to 3-2, still no swing. Then the runner is thrown out while trying to steal and the inning ends. At the start of the next inning, the same batter comes up again with no count – but it is still considered the same at bat – and he goes to 3 and 2 again. That’s ten pitches and still no swings. The next pitch is the 11th – either it is strike three, ball four, or the batter makes contact.

3.

Six – base on balls (walk), hit by pitch, catcher’s interference, fielder’s choice, a fielding error, the batter strikes out swinging but the catcher drops the ball and can’t throw the batter out.

4.

Six – One scenario: The first batter singles. The second batter singles, the runner is thrown out advancing to third. The third batter singles, again the runner is out advancing to third. The fourth and fifth batters single to load the bases. The sixth batter hits a ground ball which strikes a base runner in fair territory, the ball is dead, the base runner is out, the batter is awarded a single, and the inning is over.
