The outcome of the first two game of 2013 World Series has come down to which team makes fewer errors.

In Game 1, St. Louis had three errors, which led to three unearned runs and helped Boston to an 8-1 victory.

Boston returned the favor, making two errors on the same play as St. Louis rallied from a 2-1 deficit to score three runs in the deciding seventh inning.

Making errors are not what these two teams are used to in the 2013 season.

St. Louis tied for the National League lead in least errors with the Arizona Diamondbacks, turning in 75 miscues in 162 games.

The Red Sox finished eighth in the Majors with 80 errors over the course of the regular season. The Major League Baseball average was 92 errors and the team with the worst MLB record, the 51-111 Houston Astros, had the most errors (145).
