DETROIT (AP) — The Los Angeles Angels made three errors on one play in the first inning of their game against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.

Ian Kinsler was on first and began running on a 3-2 pitch to Miguel Cabrera. It was ball four, but catcher Hank Conger threw to second anyway, and the ball sailed into center field.

Kinsler went to third, and when center fielder Mike Trout's throw back to the infield missed the cutoff man, the Detroit runner tried to score.

It looked as if the Angels would have a play on Kinsler, but pitcher Hector Santiago picked up the ball near the mound and threw wildly to the plate. Kinsler scored and Cabrera went to second.

Conger, Trout and Santiago all received errors on the play.
