Cubs slugger Anthony Rizzo wins second Gold Glove

Colorado Rockies infielder DJ LeMahieu, who helped lead LSU to the 2009 College World Series title, was named the victor Sunday night of the 2018 National League Gold Glove Award at second base.

The 26-year-old Betts won for the third straight year. This was a good moment for baseball fans to realize that the 2018 Red Sox weren't just about mashing the ball - they played disciplined defense too. Teammate Andrew Benintendi also was nominated, but Kansas City Royals left fielder Alex Gordon took home his sixth Gold Glove instead.

Red Sox fans definitely wanted to see the last Gold Glove to go to Benintendi so that their entire outfield could have been recognized for their elite defense. In 2013, Rawlings added a sabermetric component to the Rawlings Gold Glove Award selection process as part of its new collaboration with the SABR.

He said he was honored to have won the award and proud of the hard work he's given this season.
