Phillips' career-high errorless streak ends at 107 games

ST. LOUIS -- A bad throw by Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips on Friday vs. the Cardinals brought an end to his club-record errorless streak.

Leading off the bottom of the second inning, Jon Jay hit a ground ball far to Phillips' left. After making a nice stop, Phillips' throw pulled first baseman Brayan Pena off of the bag. Pena attempted a sweep tag to get Jay, but he was unsuccessful.

The official scorer charged Phillips with an error. It ended his career-high 107-game streak without making an error -- which was also a single-season club record for second basemen and the longest streak at that position this season in the Major Leagues.

Phillips committed his only other error this season on April 5 vs. the Mets at Citi Field. He is a four-time National League Gold Glove Award winner.
