5 5 is incorrect 3-2 count is 5 pitches then a 3rd strike would make the total number possible 6 The correct answer is 11. 3-1 count, man is on first, and 2 outs. Next pitch is a strike for a 3-2 count but the runner on first attempts to steal, but is thrown out for out number 3. Same batter comes up to the plate the next inning and is dealt with a 3-2 count then walks or strikes out on the next pitch.

In an at bat a batter as to get 4 balls before they walk. A walk meaning they get to be on first base. In a at bat where there are no foul balls they batter gets three strikes before they are out. If there are foul balls they count as pitches, but a batter can not strike out on a foul ball that is not caught.

Yes, whether the batter attempted to contact the ball or not, if the ball strikes the bat and is fouled off, it is a strike, unless there are already two strikes, of course. If, on the other hand, the ball strikes the bat and goes into fair territory, the ball is in play, and the runner can attempt to reach first.
