No, since a sacrifice bunt does not count as an at bat the batter's average stays the same.

How do batting averages work?

Batting average is the oldest and one of the most important statistics used in baseball. Steps: 1. Add up your hits. 2. Add up your at bats. At bats include every time you hit safely or hit into an out, including a strike out. Getting on base by an error or fielder's choice is considered an out. A Sacrifice, walk or hit by pitch is not counted as a hit or an out. 3. Divide your hits by your at bats. 4. Round off the number to the third decimal place. For example, .33051 is .331. Tips: A walk or a hit by pitch will not hurt your batting average but will increase your on-base percentage. If you hit safely but are out trying to get an extra base on the same play, it is still considered a hit. Warnings: Batting average is not as important for a leadoff hitter as on-base percentage is.
