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.

    Brings back fond memories — when I laced up the (molded) spikes for the “DeWitt Insurance” nine and hit that game-winning infield home run!

    The throw by Parra hit the runner and deflected into the stands; it was an almost impossible play for Bloomquist to make. And in any case it was a bad decision by Parra to make the throw at all.

    Wild finish – but what’s up with the God-awful uniforms on both sides?

      Some sort of Italian Heritage/Appreciation Day or something. All I know is that “Birrai” is Italian for “Brewers”, and they’re wearing Italian colors.

    How many days before we hear that Gomez is fined for bumping into the third base umpire?

    I can hear the benny hill music in my head when I watch this.

    Bad news: Spam seems like it is increasing on HBT. Good News: Spammers are targeting this blog because of it is increasing in popularity which likely signals HBT isn’t going anywhere. Bad news: NBC needs better filters to eliminate and prevent the waste of space that are spammers. Also some lighter and opinionated bad news: HBT’s popularity ensures higher job security for paid bloggers which seems to allow unnamed primary contributors to take vacations in California in the middle of the season. ;)
