In 9 Ball what do you do when the 9 ball drops out of the rack before the break?

It is frustrating when you have a high score going into the last of the 5 games when the 9 ball drops to the sunk tray before you can make the break.  Is there anything I can do to save the game?

I don't understand how any ball can move before the break.

Thanks for responding.  Inexplicably the 9 ball migrates from the center of the rack (prior to breaking the rack) to the sunken balls tray.  Even when you run out the rest of the balls at the end you can only foul 3 times to end the game with a zero score or just quit the game and start over even if you already have a high score working.  For me it happens about once every 10 - 20 games.

Yeah, apparently a coding error.  Make sure you are not in a foul situation and do not sink the last ball forcing the computer to do so, then the computer will foul out before you do, and you'll be the winner.
