Bottom of the 9th tied 1 to 1, third strike the catcher catches the ball, game over, proven by slow-mo cameras, umpire makes a bad call, calls it as a dirt ball and the runner is safe, Angels lose game two 2 to 1. This controversy will go on!
Eh, I think most people seem to agree that a veteran catcher makes the tag out of habit. It's a shame the game turned on that call, but that's why other catchers do that automatically. I would have been happier if the ump had made the call more clear, but I don't think it was THAT big a deal.
