The Angels' Torii Hunter, who has the fewest errors of any outfielder in history with more than 4,500 chances, lost a fly ball in a brutal sun field in Cleveland on Sunday and allowed two runs to score.

The error was only Hunter's 36th in 4,525 chances.

Around the bigs

The Yankees left 15 men on base on Sunday but still beat the Tigers, 6-2. The major- league record for men left on in a nine-inning game is 20, set by a team rarely associated with futility - the 1956 Yankees of Yogi Berra and Mickey Mantle.

Joey Votto stroked a homer in the Reds' 6-5 win over Houston, his 117th as a first baseman, tying Sean Casey for fourth in career homers at the position for Cincinnati. Lee May is third with 139, behind Tony Perez's 141 and one of Touch 'Em All's favorite players from the 1950s, Ted Kluszewski, with 249.

The Yankees demoted Freddy Garcia to the bullpen a day after he gave up six runs to Detroit in 12/3 innings.

Bryce Harper was 1 for 3 in his major-league debut on Saturday, including a double to center and a sacrifice fly that gave Washington a brief 2-1, lead.

Millville's Mike Trout, the second-youngest player in the majors to Harper (both are 19), made his 2011 debut for the Angels and was 0-4.

The Kansas City Royals, who lost at Minnesota on Sunday, are an unbelievable 0-10 at home.
