Sentences and paragraphs are typically read like a time line...with the events happening in the order they are spoken/typed/written.

Since a bang bang play at the plate was written before he called time, I'm going on the assumption that the "play" in question happened before he called time, since it is written that way.
In other words, you agree with CecilOne, who was disagreeing with DeRef, who claimed that R1 hadn't scored before time was called. This is much less wordy.
