Question about K's

Postby SweetAurillia » Wed May 09, 2007 10:02 pm

So me and my buddy were debating about this. Let's say a batter swings at strike 3 but the pitch is wild and he reaches on base for whatever reason. Does the pitcher still get a K? I'm just guessing since a K is a strike OUT that they don't but I'm shooting int he dark here.

I love when it happens, and the pitcher strikes out the side and gets 4 K's in one inning.

10.15 Strikeouts
A strikeout is a statistic credited to a pitcher and charged to a batter when the umpire calls three strikes on a batter, as set forth in this Rule 10.15.
(a) The official scorer shall score a strikeout whenever a batter:
(1) is put out by a third strike caught by the catcher;
(2) is put out by a third strike not caught when there is a runner on first before two are out; (3) becomes a runner because a third strike is not caught; or
(4) bunts foul on third strike, unless such bunt on third strike results in a foul fly caught by any fielder, in which case the official scorer shall not score a strikeout and shall credit the fielder who catches such foul fly with a putout.
