Wait. If you steal first, it still counts as a strikeout even though the batter isn't out??? How does MLB justify that?

It's not really stealing first, it's more like advancing on a wild pitch or passed ball. So even though you did indeed garner three strikes, you aren't actually out unless the third strike is caught, you are tagged with the ball, or the ball is thrown to first before you get there. As for why, it has a long convoluted history, like much of baseball. Check this out:

It's a strikeout which goes to the pitcher stats. But it's either a wild pitch or a passed ball which is an error. The runner advances on an error.

15/15 nice quiz but pretty easy for an avid baseball fan.
Level 67
Aug 13, 2022
Altuve might have hit 50, but there were a few games when the Astros couldn't find the right trash can to bang on.
Level 81

Even with the cheating, Altuve was nowhere close to 50 homeruns.
