Run (baseball)

In baseball, a run is scored when a player advances safely around all three bases and returns safely to home plate. The object of the game is for a team to score more runs than its opponent.

In baseball statistics, a player who advances around all the bases to score is credited with a run, sometimes referred to as a "run scored."
