Polanco's errorless streak ends
Second baseman hadn't committed a miscue in 186 games
By Jason Beck / MLB.com

BOSTON -- Placido Polanco's Major League record errorless streak for a second baseman ended on Tuesday, when his relay throw to third base ended up in the Tigers' dugout, allowing Red Sox star Manny Ramirez to score.

Polanco hadn't committed an error since July 1, 2006. He went 186 games and 911 total chances without one, easily eclipsing the previous records for Major League second basemen held in both cases by Luis Castillo.

Compared to last summer, when an error previously charged to him was reversed to him, the end to his streak on Tuesday came with no debate. Ramirez hit a ball deep to center field and over the head of Brandon Inge to lead off the bottom of the third inning. Ramirez rounded second as Inge gathered the ball and fired to Polanco in short center.

Polanco had a play on Ramirez at third, but his throw hit the infield dirt in front of Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera and skipped off of his glove. The ricochet seemingly prevented pitcher Kenny Rogers from blocking it as it rolled into the dugout for an automatic advance of Ramirez.

Ramirez's run made it a 2-0 lead for the Red Sox.
