I saw my friend Bob at the bar. He was drinking heavily and looked really down. I asked him, "What's the matter?"
He said, "My baseball team just got six hits in an inning and yet they didn't score a single run!"
I said, "That's impossible!"

Is it?





What Next?

I ogt it right, but only because I used to play t-ball...which is basically baseball with a hitting stand(the tee).

I don't think that's right. Since the runner was out in a force situation (it doesn't have to be a force out), the hit shouldn't count.

I came up with a more contrived answer, which may (or may not) work:

The batter grounds to the short stop, the batter reaches first, the runner from first makes it to second and comes off the bag and is tagged out before the runner from third scores. This way the out isn't ina forcing situation. (The runner from third would have to really slow.)

If the base runners were dolts and only advance one base per hit, there are ceratinly ways to have even more hits with no runs!! Believe me, I've been a Cubs fan for a long time and know what goofy situations can occur!! LOL

I don't think there is any other way for this to happen, other than different ways for the first two players to get on base and then make out.
