St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina has won his sixth straight Gold Glove award, making him one of four players in the World Series rewarded for superior defense this season.

 

Boston Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia and right fielder Shane Victorino also were honored Tuesday, along with Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright.

 

Colorado third baseman Nolan Arenado became the 10th rookie to win a Gold Glove and first since outfielder Ichiro Suzuki in 2001. Atlanta shortstop Andrelton Simmons and Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado also were among the eight first-time recipients.

 

The Orioles and Royals had three winners apiece, tied for the most of any team. Kansas City left fielder Alex Gordon won his third in a row.

 

Rawlings has presented Gold Gloves since 1957.
