1) If a runner scores on a sac fly but only got to third because of a fielding error (he had reached safely initially), is that still an unearned run?

2) If there's an error that allows a runner to reach, is every run scored after 2 outs unearned or just the man who reached on the error? Are there exceptions to this?

AFAIK the process is to reconstruct the inning as though the error was an out. And every run scoring after what would have been the 3rd out is unearned.

Scenario #1 - Depends on what happened to later batters. If the next guy (after sac fly) hits a double, then the error didn't matter. Base runner would have scored with or without the error. That would be earned run. It would be unearned if next guy hit a grounder for third out, or something similar.

Scenario #2 - They would all be unearned after that. Without the error you have three outs. So everything after that is unearned.
