The only thing I can think is that when you compressed the pistons, you forced the fluid out of the calipers and back into the master cylinder, but it was overfilled and leaked out. When you pushed down on the brake pedal, the calipers filled back up, but somehow got some air into the system.
If you somehow introduced air into the system, the only way to correct is to bleed the entire system.
