Rich Aurilia had a bad day while starting at 3B. He went 0 for 3 and had an error on a groundball that he let play him. He was able to glove the ball (he still has pretty quick hands), but then bounced the throw about 2/3rds of the way to 1B. The throw was also wide as Bowker kept the ball from getting by, but had to leave the bag to do so. In the same inning, Rich let an attempted sac bunt go, expecting it to roll foul.....of course it didn't and ended up being a basehit. I don't know if he was gunshy and didn't want to attempt a throw or not, but it looked like a relatively easy play if he would have grabbed the ball when he first reached it.
