Automatic s-house

From the 2007 FED casebook:

While advancing to second, R1 is hit by a batted ball that prevents an obvious double play on him and the batter-runner.

Ruling: Both the runner and the batter-runner are declared out.

Anyone ever call 2 on this? The rule says the runner is out and the batter gets a single, and there is no exception listed for an "obvious" double play.

Simple - interpret what the case book is trying to achieve. If you think the runner did it on purpose get two outs.

Now that makes 100% sense, and I actually found it in the rules.

8.4.1.h. The batter-runner is out when any runner or retired runner interferes in a way which obviously hinders an obvious double play.
