He’s golden: Jackie Bradley Jr. becomes first Gamecock to win Gold Glove

  • Jackie Bradley Jr, Mookie Betts, Ian Kinsler all win Gold Gloves

Though it was perhaps a bit of a longshot to suggest that Justin Smoak would take home the Gold Glove Award for American League first baseman, it still would've been undeniably nice to have at least one Toronto Blue Jay take home an award.

With the win, Greinke ties Ron Guidry, Phil Niekro and Kenny Rogers for seventh all-time among pitchers to win the award.

Ahmed had some stiff competition for the award as three-time victor Brandon Crawford and San Diego's Freddy Galvis were also in the mix.

He is only the third first baseman in franchise history to earn the award, joining four-time victor Mark Grace and Derek Lee, who won twice.

The Boston Red Sox have celebrated the pinnacle of team achievements, parading around the city with the World Series trophy in their hands.

It's the third straight for Betts in right field. He also is a top contender for the AL MVP award.

Magic Johnson Admonishes Luke Walton For Lakers' Slow Start
The Los Angeles Lakers came into this season with something they haven't had in a while: expectations. Lakers coach Luke Walton , right, reportedly got an earful from team president Magic Johnson .

Wong committed nine errors in 119 games at second.

Kinsler got his second Gold Glove at second base, and Bradley won for the first time in center. A total of eight outfielders for the Pirates have won a Gold Glove, with Marte being the last in 2015 and 2016.

The pitcher also joins Greg Maddux, Niekro, Bob Gibson and Mike Mussina in the Major League Baseball record books as the only pitchers with at least five Gold Gloves and All-Star selections.

His three Gold Gloves are the most by a middle infielder in franchise history.

First baseman Matt Olson and third baseman Matt Chapman were recognized for the Athletics, and second baseman D.J. LeMahieu and third baseman Nolan Arenado won for the Rockies.
