Runner at 2nd breaks very early pitcher throws directly to 3rd base .

They called a balk????? I only saw it on MLB network highlights tivoed still never saw the balk? I cant believe MLB umpires would call a balk for throwing to unoccupied base when a play was happening.

Was the runner actually stealing? They probably judged that he wasn't, which is a balk under OBR.
