That's an RBI, but not a hit, walk or sacrifice. One of the oddities of baseball scorekeeping is that a fly ball out that scored a run is a "sacrifice" and an RBI, but a ground ball that scores a run is just an out, though still an RBI.

What I would like to know is how Dawson got 4 RBI in those games - I see one SF and one GIDP, but I would imagine that's very unlikely to account for more than 2 RBI, and almost certainly not 4. If that's all it is, I'd be interested to know what the plays were that made that happen, and if not, how else did he get those RBI?

1. You should have done plate appearances appearences since it includes walks.
2. What're you, Homes?
