2 earned, 3 unearned. Batter 6 should have been the third out, hence the 2b from batter 8 that drove in three would not have occured if Batter 3 was the third out. Therefore the three runs that occured as a result of batter 8's 2b would be unearned.

This... is a simple game. You throw the ball. You hit the ball. You catch the ball.  "There are three types of baseball players: those who make things happen, those who watch it happen, and those who wonder what happened."
