Betts, Bradley, Kinsler Win Gold Gloves
The Red Sox outfield took home some hardware Sunday when Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr. claimed the American League Gold Glove awards in right field and center field.
This marks the first time two Red Sox outfielders have won Gold Gloves in the same year since Dwight Evans and Fred Lynn accomplished the feat in 1979.
Betts won the award for the third straight year. This is Bradley’s first career Gold Glove.
Ian Kinsler won the award at second base. It is his second Gold Glove.
Andrew Benintendi, who was nominated for the first time in his career, did not win in left field. The award went to Alex Gordon of the Royals, who claimed his sixth Gold Glove.
Mitch Moreland missed out on his second Gold Glove at first base, losing out to Oakland’s Matt Olson.
