Swinging Strike on a Bounced Ball


BaseballNoob from San Jose asks:

If a batter tries to hit a bounced ball and misses, but the ball does not go though the strike zone, is this a ball or a strike?

This is a strike since the batter swung at the pitch and missed. It does not matter that the ball bounced in this case of that it didn't go through the strike zone since the batter swung and missed.
