Opponents again recognized Adrian Beltre of the Rangers as the American League's top defensive third baseman on Tuesday.

Beltre won his third career Gold Glove in voting conducted among league managers, coaches and players. Beltre won his two previous Gold Gloves in 2007 and 2008, while with Seattle. He became the first Rangers' third baseman to receive the award since Buddy Bell in 1984.

LA Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw (Highland Park) won the NL Gold Glove at pitcher.

Beltre was the only Ranger to be named as the top defender at his position. He is the first Ranger to receive a Gold Glove since 2008, when Michael Young was named the top defensive shortstop.
