We're still scoreless through three. Magrann would later record the Owls' first hit of the day, and steal second himself before a ground out ended the inning.
The Owls had the bases juiced, with one, sitting on a 3-0 count. BJ Murray saw the count get worked to 3-2, then grounded into an easy 4-6-3 double play. Unbelievable.
