Red Sox History Notebook: Youkilis Gets Defensive at First Base

On this date in 1998, Kevin Youkilis plays his 194th consecutive error-free game at first base, breaking Steve Garvey's 23-year-old major league record. The Red Sox beat the A's, 5 - 0, as six players get two hits and Jon Lester and two relievers team up on a shutout.

His last error at first base took place during the 2006 season. His streak would get to 223 when on May 18th he would finally make an error at first base in a game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Youkilis would make three more errors at first base during the 2008 season
