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.
