And in the 14th game, he made a bad throw.

Yankees second base prospect Rob Refsnyder's errorless streak ended Thursday with a fielding miscue in the third inning, but the 24-year-old kept up his strong work at the plate, adding a hit and a walk for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in a 10-2 win over Durham.

Refsnyder hadn't committed an error since botching two plays in Game 1 of a doubleheader on April 25. . That spotless 13-game stretch in the field concluded when Refsnyder's errant throw allowed J.P. Arencibia to reach first to lead off the bottom of the third.

Refsnyder (1-for-5, walk, 2 RBIs, run) has now hit in 15 of 16 games. He walked in his only hitless game during that span.

Jaron Long, the son of former Yankees and current Mets hitting coach Kevin Long, had his second solid start in a row, allowing two runs (one earned), five hits and three walks in five innings. The righthander struck out three.

During his first season in Triple-A, Long has allowed three runs or fewer in five of his seven starts for the RailRiders (17-18, 4th place in International League North).

On Thursday, he showed an ability to work out of trouble.

With the bases loaded and two outs in the first, Long got Luke Maile to ground into a force out. Long loaded the bases again with two outs in the second, but struck out Mikie Mahtook swinging to end the inning. After Refsnyder's throw allowed Arencibia to reach in the third, Long walked Allan Dykstra before getting Maile on a sacrifice fly that advanced Arencibia to third. Eugenio Velez grounded into an inning-ending double play, though not before Arencibia crossed home plate.
