DETROIT (AP) -Placido Polanco of the Detroit Tigers committed an error in the first inning Friday night against the New York Yankees, ending an errorless streak for a second baseman.
Polanco played 147 games without an error, dating to July 1, 2006, until he fielded a chopper from Melky Cabrera and made a low-and-wide throw to first. The play also ended his other record for a second baseman, going 725 straight chances without an error.
The game started following a rain delay of 4 hours and 1 minute.
Luis Castillo held the previous mark for second basemen with 143 errorless games from May 30, 2006, to June 5, 2007, while playing for the Minnesota Twins. The major league record for consecutive errorless games by any infielder is 193, set by Steve Garvey from 1983-85.
