In baseball , the statistical summary of a game is reported in a box score. An abbreviated version of the box score, duplicated from the field scoreboard, is the line score. The line score is a two-line chart that reports each team's run totals by inning , and total runs, total hits , and total errors on a line.
The visiting team is on the top line and the home team on the bottom line. The terms top of the inning and bottom of the inning are derived from their positions in the line score. Sometimes, the winning team is bolded or colored for quick-reference. If the home team is already leading and does not bat in the bottom of the 9th inning, that position in the line score will have an "X" instead of a number of runs scored.
The box score lists the line score as well as individual and team performance in the game. The statistics used are those recorded by the official scorer of each game. The following box score is of a notable game in baseball history, game 6 of the World Series.
In the example, the stadium 's name the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome and city Minneapolis are listed. The line score is always listed as part of the box score, usually near the top; it lists the total runs scored in each inning. The Atlanta Braves scored two runs in the fifth inning and one in the seventh. The Minnesota Twins scored two runs in the first inning, one in the fifth, and one in the eleventh. Innings are normally grouped in sets of three for ease of reading.
The team totals of runs , hits , and errors are listed last, after a separating character such as a dash. The actual score of the game is represented by the first column after the dash; the Twins won this game four runs to three.
The batting performances of each player in the game are grouped by team, with the visiting team listed first. Players are listed by last name in the order in which they were listed on the lineup card for the game, showing all players who enter the game at any point whether they make a plate appearance or not.
Their fielding positions or batting roles are normally listed next to their last name. Typically only last names are used, unless two players with the same name appear in the game, in which case a distinctive first initial is also used. When a player switches fielding position, both positions are listed. Brian Hunter , in the sixth position of the Braves' batting order , started at left field but also served as the first baseman.
Substitute players are listed where they were placed in the batting order in cases such as a double switch , not necessarily in the position of the player they replaced. Players who had an offensive role only are listed by that role: Substitutes who enter for defensive purposes and do not make a plate appearance have their fielding position shown and their batting line score shown as zeros.
When a pinch hitter or pinch runner remains in the game, his fielding position is also listed. Some box scores will indent substitutes' names to indicate their spot in the order was the same as the non-indented starter's name above it; others will leave all names left-justified.
Batting statistics are displayed to the right of the names in the lineup. At minimum are shown each batter's at bats , runs, hits, and runs batted in. Some box scores show other player statistics such as home runs , stolen bases , bases on balls , strikeouts , fielding errors, times left on base , home runs, or season batting average.
