Was it a Blown Call? Pittsburgh Pirates Erupt Over Home-Plate Error By Ump

Decide for yourself.  You get the Braves announcers calling the play, followed by the Pirates announcers.  Perhaps it's a brush tag, but I can't understand how the umpire makes that call in that situation.

Why MLB can continue to justify not expanding its use of instant replay is beyond me.  This was a call that decided a game between two top National League teams, perhaps with future wild card implications.
