MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

Victorino wins third Gold Glove

NEW YORK » Cincinnati third baseman Scott Rolen won his eighth Gold Glove yesterday, one of three Reds players to be honored following the team’s first playoff appearance in 15 years. Second baseman Brandon Phillips and pitcher Bronson Arroyo also were among the National League recipients announced by Rawlings.

It’s the first time Cincinnati has had more than one winner in a season since the days of the Big Red Machine, when catcher Johnny Bench, second baseman Joe Morgan, shortstop Dave Concepcion and center fielder Cesar Geronimo won four straight from 1974 to ’77.

"I think our defense won a lot of games this year," Rolen said.

Philadelphia outfielder Shane Victoriono of Maui and St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina each garnered their third Gold Glove in a row. Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez joined Arroyo as first-time winners. Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols won for the second time (2006), and speedy Houston center fielder Michael Bourn was a repeat winner.
