Hechavarria having uncharacteristic month at short

MIAMI -- Making spectacular plays look routine has been commonplace for Marlins shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria.

Because the 24-year-old has been a dynamic difference maker in the field for so long, it's unusual to see him charged with an error, let alone two in the same game.

But that's what happened in Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Dodgers, the first time Hechavarria has been charged with more than one error in a game.

"Guys are going to make errors," manager Mike Redmond said. "We watch him make so many plays that we don't expect him to make errors. That's not realistic. He's going to make errors."

Many in the Marlins' organization feel Hechavarria defensively is as good as any shortstop in the National League. He now has 13 errors on the season. Six of them have been in August.

"We get so used to him making all these great plays, but there is the human side of it," Redmond said. "Once in a while you're going to get a bad hop, or you're going to come up on a ball, and make a few errors. That's just a part of it. We're just not used to seeing it."
