Did Jimmy Rollins punk Josh Thole?

Second inning, one out. R.A. Dickey lays down a sacrifice bunt, and Josh Thole takes off for second base. Except as Thole arrives at second, Phillies short stop Jimmy Rollins appears to hold his hand up in a, "Whoa, slow down" motion. Thole apparently thinks the bunt has gone foul and begins leisurely making his way back to first base. Except the bunt wasn't foul, and Cliff Lee threw to Rollins, who threw to first to get Thole and end the inning.
