DENVER -- Chicago's Darwin Barney is now one game away from tying the Major League record for consecutive errorless games by a second baseman.

On Wednesday night at Coors Field, Barney played in his 140th error-free game, and is one away from matching the Major League mark of 141 games, set in 2007 by Placido Polanco with the Tigers.

Barney is rewriting the National League mark each game as he surpassed the old record of 123 games, held by Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg, who was Barney's former Minor League manager.

Barney leads all NL second basemen in fielding percentage and has made one error this season. His errorless streak is st 1,139 1/3 innings.

Don't expect Darwin Barney to get a day off.

"Barney has the whole winter to rest," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said.
