Re: Stuffy McInnis, July 5, 1920 (2nd game) missing run scored?
Thanks for pointing this out.
It looks like there were three official errors in the runs scored column that day. McInnis should have been credited with one run scored (not zero), Eddie Foster with zero runs scored (not two), and Everett Scott with two runs scored (not one). Or at least that was the consensus of the Boston Globe and the wire service.
By the way, I went and look for other instances where a batter had more homers than runs scored in a game. I found only one other case. That was also an official error, but one of a very different flavor. I'm speaking, of course, of Bengie Molina's HR without a run scored on 9-26-2008.
