Los Angeles Angels veteran starter Trevor Cahill was having no trouble in the early going against the Minnesota Twins, but a dribbler in no-man's-land in the second inning eventually tripped him up. Cahill attempted one of those no-look flips to get the out at first base, but it didn't go well at all. Take a look:

Cahill found the ball behind him instead of his first baseman, and his glove went flying in the other direction off his hand to boot. What a perfect fail.

Ball went flying. Glove went flying. Everyone gets an extra base.
Not only did he embarrass himself with the attempted flip, but C.J. Cron (who reached base on a wild pitch after striking out) and batter Jonathan Schoop advanced on the base paths and made it second and third with one out.
That set up a two-run double by the next batter Ehire Adrianza, giving the Twins a 2-0 lead.
Maybe consider focusing harder on the fundamentals, Trevor.
