The ball hit off the wall, eluding center fielder Gregor Blanco and kicking back toward the infield.
Ender Inciarte scored easily from first and Arizona third-base coach Glenn Sherlock elected to wave Owings around for a possible inside-the-park homer.
Blanco, however, tracked down the ball and fired a strike to cutoff man Brandon Crawford, who in turn made an accurate throw to catcher Hector Sanchez, who tagged Owings for the third out of the inning.
D-backs manager Kirk Gibson came out to apparently tell home-plate umpire Dan Iassogna that he thought Sanchez did not give Owings a lane in which to slide.
Iassogna talked things over with third-base umpire and crew chief Dale Scott, and they decided to initiate a crew-chief review.
