Mistakes adding up
Until the ninth inning on Saturday night, the Marlins and Rays were playing a pretty competitive game.
Tampa Bay, however, blew it up open with six runs in the ninth inning. The Marlins ended up losing 10-3.
The way the Marlins lost was especially frustrating. In all, Marlins pitching walked nine, hit a batter and issued a walk. In the field, they committed three errors.
According to Elias, the last time an MLB team walked at least nine, hit a batter, recorded a balk, committed three or more errors and allowed 10 runs came in 1998. That year, the Mets did it in a 10-5 loss to the Cardinals on Aug. 21.
