8/5 Barney sets 2B record

Darwin Barney set a single-season club record with his 91st-straight errorless game at second base on Saturday. The streak has reached 730 innings since his only 2012 miscue at second base April 17 in Miami. Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg held the previous single-season mark of 90-straight games without a miscue at second from June 21, 1989, through the end of the season (that was part of Sandberg’s franchise record 123-game errorless streak that ran through May 17, 1990). The NL single-season record for consecutive errorless games at second base is 113, done by San Diego’s David Eckstein in 2010. The AL single-season mark is held by Placido Polanco, who had 141-consecutive errorless games at second base in 2007.

Whooo! Go Barney! :)

Congratulations Darwin Barney. You are an exciting player to watch.
Thank you for all the dedication you put into the games. You are a
great Cub. Go Dar!!!!!

He got lucky last week though. dropped the ball on the turn at second base, and then got a call on a short hop that went for a hit in the same game, either of those could have been called errors.

But they weren’t by the official scorer so Barney remains an errorless, execellent fielder, NOT a LUCKY one. Go Barney!!!

Whooo! Well said :)

Whoo!
