USSSA Rule Cases ball kicked to DBT

This was in the USSSA Rules Cases sent out recently.

"156. R1 is on first base when B2 hits a pitched ball fair. The ground ball is booted by an infielder or outfielder and rolls into dead ball territory.

Ruling - DEAD BALL and a TWO BASE AWARD; R1 is awarded second and third bases, and B2 is awarded first and second bases. Awards on a batted ball which is deflected off a defensive player into dead ball territory are based on runner position at the time of pitch, NOT at the time the ball becomes dead (8.14.C.1, p 47; 8.15.A.1, p48)"

Sounds like basically the same ruling as USA, although the USA case play states the kicked ball is treated the same as a thrown ball into dead ball territory.
