Comedy of Errors
The Yankees lost in embarrassing fashion on Monday, committing five errors en route to a 4-2 loss against the worst team in baseball, the Texas Rangers.
It was the first time they had at least five errors in a nine-inning game since August 20, 1998 at Minnesota, and the first time at home since October 1, 1989 vs the Tigers.
Somehow Yankee pitchers were not charged with any unearned runs despite the five errors. This is the only time in the last 100 years that the Yankees made at least five errors without allowing an unearned run in a nine-inning game. It has happened twice in extra-inning games in that span: on August 9, 2002 vs the A’s and August 18, 1927 vs the White Sox.…
