The problem is you are implying intent with your own wording of the statement.

" in an attempt to avoid or delay a tag." That statement alone implies there is an intent involved, so you can't say intent is not required and say "in an attempt to avoid or delay a tag."

For me to call this it has to be obvious that she is attempting to avoid or delay being tagged rather than simply being a batter that was off balance and not attempting to step back from a swing or attempting to get out of the way of the catcher who was attempting to make a play on the runner advancing from 2nd to 3rd.
