Rays tie team mark for errors on Saturday

BALTIMORE -- The Rays committed five errors Saturday night, tying the club record (previously on May 12, 2000 vs. Toronto and April 15, 2001 vs. Toronto). However, Saturday night's error-fest was the Rays' first in which five different players committed errors.

Entering Sunday's contest against the Orioles, the Rays had committed 28 errors, the fifth most in the Major Leagues, after committing a Major League-low 73 errors last season. They have twice as many errors as they had last season through 34 games (14). This is their highest total through 34 games since 2007.

Combined with Baltimore's two errors, the seven errors were the most ever in a game involving the Rays. The previous high was six, done four times, most recently May 18, 2011 at Toronto when the Blue Jays made five errors and the Rays made one.
