Last night batter has a 1 ball 1 strike count. Is hurt on the swinging strike and has to leave the game. Subsitute batter strikes out. Is the injured batter given the K?

When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that justifies it.--Frederic Bastiat

There is and I forgot to mention that part. I was just going by the count and situation given above.
The new batter would assume the previous batter's count. The new batter would get credit for the at bat and whatever the outcome was with one exception. If the new batter assumed a count with 2 strikes and then struck out, the previous batter would get the AB and be credited with the strikeout.
10.15 (b) When a batter leaves the game with two strikes against him, and the substitute batter completes a strikeout, the official scorer shall charge the strikeout and the time at bat to the first batter. If the substitute batter completes the turn at bat in any other manner, including a base on balls, the official scorer shall score the action as having been that of the substitute batter.
