Should Atlanta United have been awarded a penalty vs. Revs?

Atlanta United beat the New England Revolution 1-0 in Round One in the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs. But the result wasn't without a little controversy.

In the 43rd minute, Josef Martinez attempted to collect a Franco Escobar pullback, but Revs goalkeeper Matt Turner got there around the same time. The replays did not appear definitive and the on-field decision by Kevin Stott held up: No penalty. Martinez was shown a yellow card for simulation.

In the second half, Atlanta had a second shout for a penalty. Andrew Farrell made a last-ditch tackle to stop Ezequiel Barco in the box. There appeared to be some contact, but Stott did not opt to point to the spot.

What are your thoughts? Should Atlanta been awarded a penalty in either case?
