PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Trevor Cahill tossed three-hit ball into the eighth inning, Adam Rosales homered and the Oakland Athletics beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 on Saturday night.
Cahill and Phillies starter Cole Hamels had a nice and easy duel going in a game that breezed by until the Phillies rallied late. Cahill (8-5) won his second straight start after dropping five straight and spoiled Hamels’ bid to win his 10th game.
Scott Sizemore’s RBI single in the fourth made it 2-1. Cahill and Andrew Bailey held the lead from there. Bailey got four outs to earn his fifth save of the season.
Cahill struck out six and walked three in 7 2-3 innings, and has allowed one run or less 10 times this season.
