(I'm not saying this is the way it should be ruled, just saying the way the rules are written this does appear to be the most applicable rule when nothing is specific in the rules about the situation. As stated above, this should be considered a deflected batted ball going out of play, a thrown ball going out of play which should be a two base award, not a 1 base award).

The complicating factors are that the ball was never possessed or thrown by the defense. This is something not covered in the USSSA rules, but is covered in every other code as far as I can tell.
