If the defensive player catches the ball before the ball hits the ground, it is called a base run. Players are “intercepted”, if the pitcher throws three “good” balls to the batter, the runner is “stroke out”. When 3 of the offensive team is “killed” out of the game, the two sides exchange offense and defense.
