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. The inning before the batter was thrown 5 pitches and the next inning the batter was thrown 6 pitches for a total of 11. The previous inning at bat and the at bat the following inning counts as the same at bat.
