Defensive scorekeeping. Every defensive position is assigned a number, 1 to 9, and every position that touches the ball is credited in the scoring.
A 6-4-3 means the ball was first touched by the shortstop, then the second baseman, and finally the first baseman. (It doesn't have to be handled effectively; even if it glances off a player's shin, and I've seen that, it gets noted in the scoring.)
1 - pitcher
2 - catcher
3 - first baseman
4 - second baseman
5 - third baseman
6 - shortstop
7 - left fielder
8 - center fielder
9 - right fielder
