What is Bunt?

An offensive technique used by the batter to strategically place the baseball on the ground away from the defensive infielders. A batter may choose to bunt in an attempt for a base hit or to sacrifice himself to advance a base runner(s).

Sporting Charts explains Bunt

If, while attempting to bunt, a batter makes contact with the baseball resulting in the ball landing in foul territory, a strike will be counted in the at-bat. If the batter bunts the ball foul with two strikes, a third strike will be counted and a strikeout will be recorded.
