Is this a steal - rules question

Derrek Lowe just balked worrying about Dave Brown at first. Is Brown credited with a steal?

I'm going to take an educated guess that Dave Brown is the secret code name for Dave Roberts.

Also, when a guy steals 2b and the C overthrows into center field, so the runner takes third too:
Is that 1 sb or 2?

Since you guys are good with rules, does the batter get a rbi if the pitcher balks a runner in? In college the bases were loaded while I was at bat and the pitcher balked then I hit a hr. I've never hit a GS so I mentioned it and the stat keeper said I still got the rbi.

I'm pretty sure there's no RBI on a balk. That wouldn't make any sense.

Go buy that stat keeper a beer.

I didn't think os either, and Wikpedia confirms it. Sorry, no Grandslam.

"In baseball statistics, a run batted in (RBI) is given to a batter for each run scored as the result of a batter's plate appearance.

There are certain exceptions: a player does not receive an RBI if he hits into a double play and a run scores, if a run is scored on a wild pitch or passed ball or as the result of an error, or if the pitcher balks. A player does receive an RBI if he is walked or hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. He will also receive an RBI if a runner scores from his sacrifice fly or sacrifice bunt."
