On Monday and Tuesday nights against the Indians, the Royals made three errors in each game to mark their first back-to-back three-error games since June 17-18, 2009, against Arizona.
Oddly, the Indians' Luke Carlin reached base on all three errors in Tuesday night's 8-2 Royals victory -- a booted grounder by second baseman Johnny Giavotella, a wild throw by third baseman Mike Moustakas and a missed catch by first baseman Eric Hosmer.
Carlin was the first Major Leaguer to reach base safely three times via error in a game since Sept. 2, 2009, when the Braves' Brian McCann did it against the Marlins.
The errors in Monday night's 8-5 loss to the Tribe involved a missed tag (or so ruled by the umpire) by Moustakas, a wild pickoff throw by pitcher Jose Mijares and a booted double-play grounder by second baseman Irving Falu.
Going into Wednesday's game, the Royals ranked 10th in American League fielding and had the fifth-most errors with 33. Baltimore had the most errors at 47.
