If the scorer had changed the first error to a hit, then only one unearned run would have scored while the first run would have been earned.
Who ya crappin, Hawk?!???!
After re-visiting the box score this morning, I think I was wrong last night. Even if Cedeno gets on cleanly with a hit to lead off the inning, his run would have scored on Alexei's throwing error which should have been the third out, so I believe both runs would have been unearned even if Alexei was only charged with one error. I think. I need TDog or some other scoring wiz to verify that.
