The rationale was to align with the international rule, which was my tinfoil-hat suggestion when the survey came out.

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...
