On Wednesday afternoon, the Angels lost 8: 7 against the Minnesota Twins. Angels pitcher Trevor Cahill had to accept the loss and allowed six earned runs in 4.1 innings, so right there you already knew it was not his best day. The crucial moment of Cahill's miserable outing and certainly the most unfortunate came in the second inning when Jonathan Schoop struck a 2: 2 sinker on the first baseline and a frantic Cahill was asked to make a difficult game.
] It's not so much that Cahill did not make it, and it's not like Cahill threw the ball in a lazy area in his haste, giving the runners an extra base for the mistake , Even the tried and tested back-the-back flip, however ill-advised it is, is not the worst part of this piece. No, the most heartbreaking part of the play is the sight of Cahill's poor glove, which suddenly jumps up and down alone in the dirt of the infield. Man.
Here's an even more amazing and wonderful look at this delirious tragicomedy:
] I like it Also, when Cahill twitches awkwardly after the match with a thin and unconvincing half grin, while teammate Jared Walsh chases the ball into the dugout. This game had no chance, and I mean, no chance to improve. Presumably the humiliation of the moment will keep Cahill from ever trying such stupidities again, but I sincerely hope I am wrong.
