FWIW, here's an NFHS case play that supports my premise, and is very similar to your play:


With R1 on third base, R2 on second base and R3 on first base and one out, B5 hits safely to right field. R1 scores, R2 misses third base and scores. R3 is thrown out at third base. At the end of playing action the defensive team makes a dead-ball appeal that R2 missed third on her way home. The umpire declares R2 out. How many runs score?

RULING: No runs score since the put-out of R2 at third base was a force out and also the third out of the inning. (9-1-1 Exception d)
