I've tried those things. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. The point is, it's annoying as hell and there's no reason it should be the way it is, the developers could easily change the functionality so it's more player friendly.
Or the game would say "Would you like to join game X? Score is XX-XX. Yes/No?".
That way if it's a close game, you still have the option to hop in.
