A batter becomes a batter-runner on a DU3K.

A batter-runner is out when she steps toward home plate to avoid a tag when running to 1B.

Ergo, a BR is out for INT when the BR increases his or her distance from 1B in an attempt to avoid or delay a tag. Intent not required.

The BR is out, dead ball + runners return to TOI, by an INT ruling in your scenario......IF I am playing Rulebook Lawyer....which is one of my favorite games.

That said, I think common sense says to pass on this one, and keep the ball live....but I don't think it would survive a protest.

If you make this call, sell the shit out of it.
