See the Brewers win on a double-error


When Carlos Gomez scored to give the Brewers a 2-1 victory over the Diamondbacks on Sunday, it was the first time since 1993 that a game ended on a play with two errors. Here’s the video:

And this is one of the things about errors: the game-ending miscues here were charged to catcher Miguel Montero and outfielder Gerardo Parra, when it was second baseman Aaron Hill and third baseman Willie Bloomquist at least as responsible. Hill had a tough grab on a throw from Montero that was a little off the bag, but Bloomquist deserves more blame than Parra for not at least keeping the throw from center field in front of him.

Report: Athletics sign Trevor Cahill to one-year deal

Free agent right-hander Trevor Cahill reportedly has a one-year deal in place with the Athletics, according to’s Jane Lee. The exact terms have yet to be disclosed, and as the agreement is still pending a physical, it has not been formally announced by the club.

Cahill, 30, is coming off of a decent, albeit underwhelming year with the Padres and Royals. He kicked off the 2017 season with a 4-3 record in 11 starts for the Padres, then split his time between the rotation and bullpen after a midseason trade to the Royals. By the end of the year, the righty led the league with 16 wild pitches and had racked up a 4.93 ERA, 4.8 BB/9 and 9.3 SO/9 in 84 innings for the two teams.

The A’s found themselves in desperate need of rotation depth this week after Jharel Cotton announced he’d miss the 2018 season to undergo Tommy John surgery. Right now, the team is considering some combination of Andrew Triggs, Daniel Gossett, Daniel Mengden and Paul Blackburn for the back end of the rotation — a mix that seems unlikely to change in the last two weeks before Opening Day, as Lee points out that Cahill won’t be ready to shoulder a full workload by then. Instead, he’s expected to begin the year in the bullpen and work his way up to a starting role, where the A’s hope he’ll replicate the All-Star numbers he produced with them back in 2010.
