It was my call the whole way -- that's not what was in question. U3 rotated with R1 only has responsibility for the force at 2B and anything that happens after that.

IMHO, this is PU primary call in 2-man, and I am OK with BU coming in with INT if PU passes on it and BU is 10,000% sure.

^^^ This.

I learned to umpire in an environment where A was deemed to be the right call. I have made this call before on more than one occasion.

It is not the right call under any code.
