Can a Pitcher still have a perfect game if someone on his team gives up an error but the pitcher himself does not allow anyone on base?

No. The definition of a perfect game is that no one reaches base

in any way for the entire game, even if that runner is thrown out

on the same play. If the second baseman makes an error and allows

someone to reach first base, even if the runner tries for second

base and gets thrown out, the perfect game is over. It becomes a

no-hitter.
