Starlin Castro started an inning-ending double play, but none of the Marlins knew it

When the Marlins-Cubs game went into extra innings on Saturday night, it may have been because that's exactly what Odrisamer Despaigne wanted. Well, maybe. In the top of the third, Starlin Castro started a 4-6-3 inning-ending double play. But the thing was, nobody knew it.
If you take a look at Justin Bour's body language, he tossed the ball to his infield as if to think there was still more baseball to be played on the defensive end:

Right fielder Cameron Maybin seemed to know it was the third out as he was running towards the dugout. But once he noticed none of his other teammates were moving, he quickly paused.
Understandable, the infield made the play look really easy. 
And if you look at Despaigne, he wasn't sure what was going on either:

But, it appeared, perhaps, he just wanted to keep playing. And if that were the case, he got his wish -- for the second night in a row.
