Here I think I disagree with you. If the trailing runner is between second and third, I'm not considering him to have passed a runner who is anywhere on the 3rd base line. Regardless of who is closer to third when two players are between 2nd and 3rd, I'm determining passing by finding the player with the shorter perpendicular distance from the 3rd base line.
