Sunday Authentic Patrick Mahomes Jersey , handing out hardware to the best defensive players in baseball.MVP candidates Mookie Betts and Nolan Arenado highlighted the list of winners, which featured six first-time recipients.Although most winners were expected and well-deserved, there were a few surprises along the way, including a tie at first base between Anthony Rizzo and Freddie Freeman.Here is the full list of winners, courtesy of Rawlings Sports.National LeagueP: Zack Greinke, Arizona DiamondbacksC: Yadier Molina, St. Louis Cardinals1B: Freddie Freeman, Atlanta Braves/Anthony Rizzo, Chicago Cubs2B: DJ LeMahieu, Colorado Rockies3B: Nolan Arenado, Colorado RockiesSS: Nick Ahmed, Arizona DiamondbacksLF: Corey Dickerson, Pittsburgh PiratesCF: Ender Inciarte, Atlanta BravesRF: Nick Markakis, Atlanta Braves American LeagueP: Dallas Keuchel, Houston AstrosC: Salvador Perez http://www.kansascitychiefsteamonline.co...-ii-jersey , Kansas City Royals1B: Matt Olson, Oakland Athletics2B: Ian Kinsler, Boston Red Sox3B: Matt Chapman, Oakland AthleticsSS: Andrelton Simmons, Los Angeles AngelsLF: Alex Gordon, Kansas City RoyalsCF: Jackie Bradley Jr., Boston Red SoxRF: Mookie Betts, Boston Red Sox It was clearly hard to separate finalists at several positions, but voters thought Rizzo and Freeman were too close to pick just one, as they earned the fourth tie in the history of the award, according to Mark Bowman of MLB.com.On the other hand, a few races were easier on voters, like Arenado as he made history:Tracy Ringolsby TracyRingolsbyCorrection: Arenado 6th consecutive GG 3B; has 1 month less than 6 years in bigs. Only players more GG at start of career: Ichiro Suzuki, of, 10; Johnny Bench, c Authentic Derwin James Jersey , 10; Tied for 4th in GG at 3B behind Brooks (16), Schmidt (10) amp;amp; Rolen (8). Buddy Bell, Eric Chavez amp;amp;Robin Ventura 6.Alex Gordon also won his sixth at left field, while Yadier Molina blew them all away with his ninth Gold Glove award.Brandon Crawford was looking for his fourth straight award, but Nick Ahmed unseated him.The World Series champions were obviously impressive at the plate this season, but defense was important as well, as evidenced by three Gold Glove awards, including two outfielders.In the infield, the Colorado Rockies had two in the National League, while the American League was dominated by the Oakland Athletics:Mark Simon MarkASimonSaysAthletics infield combined for 85 Defensive Runs Saved, most in MLBThey had 2 Gold Glove winners to set the toneMark Simon MarkASimonSaysMatt Chapman: 1st career Gold Glove AwardThanks PerezEd for the shout-out to Defensive Runs Saved Chapman had 29.

The Cy Young Awards will be handed out on Nov. 14, with Most Valuable Players being named on Nov. 15. CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs lost again, and this one was particularly painful.Slugger Kris Bryant exited with a bruised left wrist, Mike Montgomery got hit hard over four-plus innings and the Cubs stumbled to a 6-0 defeat against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night.For the second time in as many nights, the Cubs missed a chance to clinch a franchise-record fourth straight trip to the postseason. And their lead in the NL Central over Milwaukee shrunk to a half-game, with the Brewers beating St. Louis 12-4.Chicago needed a win plus a loss by Colorado to Philadelphia to secure a playoff spot and extend a run that includes a drought-ending World Series championship in 2016. But the Cubs lost for the fourth time in sixth games while the Rockies won 10-3 to move a half-game ahead of St. Louis for the second wild-card.Bryant got struck by a pitch from Chris Archer (3-3) in the fourth inning and was replaced at third base in the sixth by Ian Happ, who had pinch hit in the fifth. Manager Joe Maddon expects the 2016 National League MVP to miss at least one game, though X-rays showed no fractures.“It was sore. I knew it was going to bother him. He was hit pretty good,” Maddon said.The last thing the Cubs need is to be without Bryant even if it’s only a game or two. He’s still trying to round into form after being on the disabled list from July 26 to Sept. 1 with left shoulder inflammation. He missed time earlier in the season with the same issue, and if the Cubs are going to advance in the playoffs, they obviously need him.Montgomery (5-6) gave up five runs and seven hits, and the Cubs got shut out for the 11th time this season.“Every game matters from this point on,” he said. “Eventually, our goal is the playoffs. I think our guys are equipped for that. Mentally, this kind of gives us a chance to really come together as a group.”Archer struck out nine and walked two while pitching four-hit ball over six innings . He has won his past two starts and has a 2.70 ERA in five outings in September.“Everything started to shift when I stopped shaking (catcher Francisco Cervelli) Aaron Donald Jersey Elite ,” he said. “It’s him knowing the hitters, knowing the league, and it allows me not to think too much, go with what he puts down. I’ve been pitching much more like myself.”Rookie Pablo Reyes homered for the second straight game, a three-run drive in the second. Cervelli drove in two runs, and Pittsburgh won for the eighth time in 10 games.The Cubs managed just five hits and went 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position while stranding seven runners.Chicago got shut down this time after managing just one run — all on homers — in each of their previous five meetings with the Pirates. That was a first for Major League Baseball, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.“I think that what this club has done a really good job of is to kind of wash … off a poor performance, which is unfortunately what we’ve had these past two nights,” said Daniel Murphy, acquired from Washington on Aug. 21.TRAINER’S ROOMPirates: CF Starling Marte (left calf) was back in the lineup after sitting out Monday’s game.Cubs: Maddon said RHP Pedro Strop (strained left hamstring) is “trending in the right direction,” though he wasn’t sure what the next step would be after the reliever played catch on Monday. “He keeps telling me how great he feels,” Maddon said. Strop has been sidelined since Sept. 13, when he was hurt running to first on a double-play grounder at Washington.UP NEXTPirates: RHP Ivan Nova (9-9, 4.01 ERA) has allowed two runs in 16 1/3 innings over his past three startsCubs: LHP José Quintana (13-11, 4.11) tries to shake off a loss to the Chicago White Sox. He got tagged for five runs in five innings by his former team after giving up two runs or less in six straight starts.
