Earned Run Average

In baseball, earned runs are runs committed in the absence of an error. This is tabulated to compute for the Earned Run Average (ERA) of a pitcher, which is the number of earned runs per the traditional length of a regulation game. To compute, the number of earned runs allowed is divided by the number of innings pitched, multiplied by nine. The standard of a good ERA varies each year, and is the basis of a pitcher’s assessment.
