The question's asked how do you read baseball scores. Well number one the winning team is either noted first in the scores or the home team is noted second based on whether it is posted for home team versus visitors or who the winning score is. But the first number that you usually see on a tally scoreboard much as the one in the outfield or on the score sheet in the score book is runs, hits, and errors, and they are in that order. So if you see a number beside the visiting team that says seven, four, and three, they had seven runs, on four hits, and three errors. So it's many times when you see the scores like on a sports channel they will list the winning team first. But if that is not the case, and you notice that the first score is the smaller score than the second score then they have listed it as the home team being the last score of the bottom. So when you look at the scoreboard in the outfield you can always see the visitors score on top, and you will see the home team on the bottom. And you will also note that the runs are first, the hits are second, and the errors are third. Sometimes in the score, the little score boxes they will also note strikeouts, and home runs. But basically that is how you read how to keep score.
