    Aren't these runs unearned?

    Simpson hits a fly ball to short, caught by Bailey. (1 out)
    Bernal draws a walk.
    Patterson hits a fly ball to center, caught by Blanco. (2 outs)
    Paquette gets hit by a pitch.
    Watts hits a ground ball to second, Campbell commits an error, Watts reaches on an error. (should have been 3 outs)
    Vela draws a walk, Bernal scores.
    White draws a walk, Paquette scores.
    McCallum hits a fly ball to center, caught by Blanco.

    The only reason I noticed is that my pitcher threw a no-hitter, allowing these two runs but still won 3-2.

    The rules for unearned runs are different in CSFBL than in MLB.

    I believe the only runs that are actually unearned are those that occur directly related to an error. So if there is 1 error, there can be at most 1 unearned run. How the rules are exactly for it, I don't know. But I know that Brian has said he did it because he felt like it was a better way of calculating earned runs than the way MLB does it.

    I believe, though I'm not sure, that if 2 runs score because of an error, they both will be unearned, but like hardy said, in CSFBL, a run is only unearned if it is directly the result of an error on that play. Runs that score later are still earned.

    Fix what , its been said numerous times that the calculation is deliberately correct based on how Brian sees unearned runs. There is nothing to fix.
    I just can't look its killing me
    And taking control
    Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
    Swimming through sick lullabies
    Choking on your alibis
    But it's just the price I pay
    Destiny is calling me
    Open up my eager eyes
    Cause I'm Mr Brightside

    Exactly. CSFBL <> MLB. He isn't changing it and I actually think his calculation makes more sense than the MLB one.
