Errors uncharacteristically piling up for Phils

BALTIMORE -- The Phillies have been a pretty good defensive team over the years, but not lately.

They committed nine errors in their previous six games (56 innings). Before that stretch, the Phillies had nine errors in their previous 21 games (189 innings).

The Phillies have committed three errors in a game three times through 61 games this season. They had three three-error games during the entire 2011 season.
