I should have said, it's the worst thing a batter can do in the situation.
A strikeout wonít result in that lead runner being retired. That only happens with a botched bunt, a ground ball hit in the wrong place, or a fly ball not hit far enough and the runner is thrown out at home. Those are all worse than a strikeout.
