First, Bobby Jenks allowed a seeing-eye single to Joey Gathright - JOEY GATHRIGHT?! - that ended his string of 41 consecutive batters retired.
Then Brandon Webb gave up a clean RBI single to Prince Fielder that halted his consecutive scoreless innings streak at 42.
And on Friday, Placido Polanco made a bad throw after fielding a Melky Cabrera chopper for his first error in 147 games and 725 chances, both major league records.
Polanco's miscue came in the first inning of a game that had been delayed just over four hours due to rain. If I had been him, I might have found myself wishing for more inclement weather to come along and wash that error right off the books.
