I have watched this cast several times and unfortunately it is a bastard call that Hallion misses. The Royals cast had the best angle in which you see the ball bouncing the foot hitting the bag and Cabrara then catching the ball.... Absolutely amazing play and well handled situation by Hallion.

I would expect it to be ruled as inconclusive on here b/c the EJ only shows the short ejection and the good view of the play comes after the commercial break.

The Detroit feed has a video called 'Peralta's Nice Play' that shows the replay on my MLB At Bat '11 iPad app. Still not a good slow motion replay, but nevertheless the call is very bang-bang, and I wouldn't be surprised if it was incorrect. Nevertheless it was extremely close.
