USSSA Intentionally walking into dug out for an out to end the inning.

We once played a game where we were visitors. The home team was ahead and at bat as we closed in on the time limit. They could have run the clock out simply by taking a few pitches or hitting a couple of foul balls and taking their time throwing another ball in, but only one of their players recognized it and the others didn't listen to him. My pitcher was throwing strikes, and they all swung at the 1st pitch. We came to bat with just seconds left and tied the game. Home team won in their at bat either that inning or the next, but they could have/should have ended the game with the time limit.
