Did the runner violate this guidance from the MLBUM?

I think R1 threw a forearm. A call of interference would be justifiable IMO.

On a separate note.Couldn't help but notice U3 set up on the dirt between 2nd and 3rd. Is this "normal"?   Never seen that before.

Noticed that too. Also the beyond lackadaisical movements by all three umpires when benches began to clear.
