No sir.  He touched the bag with the ball securely in glove.  It wasn't until a second or two after the play when the ball dropped out.  It happens more frequently at 2nd when someone is trying to turn a DP but drop the ball almost instantly after catching it.  The runner is always called out. 

Good start, Matt!

Different situation.  In the case you are talking about, it's considered "after the play."  During this case, it's a continuation of the play.  You have to maintain control "through the play."  If you were correct, Acta probably would have paid a visit.
