Yep, that's a second ball on the field, and Murphy was extinguished at third because the non-sanctioned ball lured him off the bag. Unfortunate, that.

Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes -- the presence of the rogue baseball was the result of Jumbo Diaz's making a vigorous overthrow in the Reds' bullpen. So that was a thing that happened on Tuesday night.
