Losing on error a rare mishap for Rays

LOS ANGELES -- The Rays lost Friday night when the Dodgers scored four runs in the ninth against closer Fernando Rodney.

The Dodgers' effort culminated when Rodney threw the ball into center field on a potential inning-ending double play that allowed the winning run to score.

When all the smoke had cleared, the Rays had suffered their seventh walk-off loss of the season and the 113th in club history. However, the loss was only the third in Rays history that came by virtue of an error.

Accounting for the other two were right-hander Albie Lopez's throwing error in a 7-6 loss at Kansas City on April 25, 2000, and third baseman Aubrey Huff's fielding error in a 3-2 loss at Oakland on May 6, 2006.
