He can't. He can only be knocked out on strike three, tag-outs (which accurs when a fielder with the Baseball tags the batter), or fly-outs (which a fielder catches the baseball before it touches the ground). However, if a fielder catches the baseball before it touches the ground, but it touched the ground before it was hit by the bat, then it's still fly-out.
