Normally a batter can get as many as six pitches (3 balls, 2 strikes, then the final pitch), not counting foul balls. In this case, if a runner is caught stealing with 2 out as the count fills to 3 and 2, the batter will return with a fresh count to begin the next inning. He can then get another 6 pitches, in addition to the 5 he had in the same at bat in the previous inning, for a total of 11 pitches.

### Can the last batter in one inning be the first batter in the next inning of the same game?

MLB Rule 6.01(b) states: " The first batter in each inning after the first inning shall be the player whose name follows that of the last player who legally completed his time at bat in the preceding inning. " In other words, if a player is at bat and does not complete the at bat before the third out is made, that batter will be the first batter in the next inning. An at bat is considered complete when the batter reaches base safely or makes an out. For example, a batter is up with two out, the count is 1 ball and 1 strike, and there is a runner on first base. On the next pitch the batter does not swing and the runner is thrown out trying to steal second base, which makes the third out. In this case, the batter that was up when the third out was made will be the first batter in the next inning because his at bat was not completed due to the runner being thrown out attempting to steal.
