The number of strikeouts in an inning of baseball?

There can be an infinite number of strikeouts in one inning. Usually and most of the time there are three but there are times it can be 4 or more. If the catcher drops a third strike and the batter reaches first base safely, that is still recorded as a strikeout for the pitcher.

If a batter on a third strike dropped runs to first and is safe because of an E2 - is it still a K for the pitcher?

Yes, and as a matter of fact, in MLB history there have been about 40-50 pitches credited with 4 strikeouts in one inning because of this. Click on the 'Four Strikeouts in One Inning' link below to see all MLB pitchers that have been credited with four strikeouts in one inning.

The .490 was Jackson's slugging percentage, not his batting average. His career batting average was .262.
