ERA stands for Earned Run Average. The number of innings per game determines how ERA is calcuated. In Major League Baseball they play 9 innings so ERA is calculated with this equation, Earned Runs divided by 9. High School baseball (at least where I am located) plays 7 innings as a regulation length game. In this case a pitcher's ERA is Earned Runs divided by 7. In Little League the a regulation game is 6 innings, so ERA would be determined by Earned Runs divided by 6. If you are playing a game and it goes in to extra innings then a pitcher's ERA is not affected by the extra innings. If a regulation game is 6 innings, and the game goes into the seventh inning, then a pitcher's ERA is still determined by # of earned runs divided by 6. In summary ERA is ALWAYS determined by the amount of Earned Runs allowed divided by the number of innings played (not including extra innings).

There are three answers to this. First, the Official Game, or Regulation Game. If a game must be called, it is Official after five innings. Next, the Complete Game. This is nine innings. And finally, the Extra Innings Game. The only way a Major League Baseball game can end in a tie is if it's called. The rules state that the game must continue until either someone wins or the umpires call the game, usually on account of darkness. In the 2014 season there were two 19-inning games and a handful of 18-inning games; the longest game was 26 innings. The most important rule in extra innings: if a team can't field nine players, it forfeits.
