ST. LOUIS (AP) -St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Aaron Miles committed three errors in a span of four at-bats in the seventh inning of Saturday night's game against the San Francisco Giants.
Miles, primarily a second baseman but getting the bulk of playing time at shortstop with David Eckstein sidelined by a back injury, had two throwing errors and a fielding miscue to help the Giants score three unearned runs and take a 7-3 lead. He has nine errors in 69 games.
Miles gloved pinch hitter Mark Sweeney's run-scoring grounder with runners on second and third that gave the Giants the lead and looked to the plate before unleashing a high throw that pulled first baseman Albert Pujols off the bag.
Two batters later, Randy Winn's grounder scooted under his glove for a second error that allowed two runs to score. The next batter, Ray Durham, reached when Miles bounced a throw to first and Pujols wasn't able to hold it, allowing a fourth run.
