Runner on third, less than 2 outs, count is 0-2 on hitter.

Wild pitch goes over the head of the hitter, catcher, umpire . . . nearly over the backstop.

Hitter, for whatever reason, 'swings' and is called strike 3.

Catcher retrieves the ball and makes play at first. . . Hitter runs and is safe at 1st.

Seeing the play at first, the runner on 3rd runs home and scores.

How is this scored?

Run scores on a "fielder's choice". As runner did not make the attempt on the wild pitch, rather the throw, then FC would be the scorebook entry.

I'm unsure, but assume it's an earned run.

Batter receives a "K" and advances via WP. No RBI.

Runner advances on a FC. Not a stolen base. Run earned.

Correct.

Craziest one I ever saw was at a HS baseball playoff game.

It was on a small-town field and the pitchers had basically dug a 4-5 inch divot in front of the pitching rubber.

Bases loaded, one out. Batter hit a low screamer right back at the pitcher. It hit the rubber and deflected back toward home plate. The catcher ran out about three steps, grabbed the ball and dove back to tag the pate, beating the runner by a quarter of a step.

I scored it 2U and a fielder's choice for the batter, even though there was no other play to be made by the catcher.

Actually, that was a very good play by the batter.
