Not only have they won 12 in a row, an amazing feat in the game of baseball, but now the Sox have tied the major league record for consecutive errorless games.
Who would have ever thought the Red Sox, of all teams, could do that?

Whatever record it is? In playing baseball’s version of The Perfect Game, the Sox last night tied the major league record for consecutive errorless games. Entering tonight’s weekend series opener against the Florida Marlins in Miami, the Sox have played 16 straight games without an error. At this point of the season, the Sox’ 23 errors are the fewest by any team since such defensive data was first kept in 1960.
