What type of error was the third baseman charged with? Dropped pop up, muffed grounder, bad throw, etc.

Looks on the surface like two earned -- batters 1 and 3. Batter 6 groundout to third would have been third out. Batter 2 was first out, batter 4 is assumed second out because (s)he's aboard on an error. What are we missing?

agree with jdex. 2 earned runs. recreate inning without errors or passed balls.


batter 4 should be 2nd out. 2nd run still would have scored on batter 5 double. batter 6 groundout should have ended inning. 3 runs that score after that never should have happened.
