Errors piling up for the Orioles

After committing two errors Thursday, the Orioles went into Friday’s game in Anaheim with 74 errors this season, most in the majors.

The Orioles are on pace to total 146 errors this season, which would tie them for the third highest total in club history (1959). Only the 1955 (167) and 1954 teams (147) committed more. Those were the Orioles first two seasons in Baltimore after moving from St. Louis.
