10 catches times two

FOUND IN THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER: Olsen tied a career high with 10 catches for 110 yards...

In the next paragraph:

"We have a ton of confidence in (Anderson)," said Olsen, who tied a career high with 10 catches and had 110 yards.

Obviously, the copy editor added one or the other (probably the second one) to add more information. Someone should have back-read it to catch the redundancy.
