The Boston Red Sox, just a week after winning the World Series, had the most players in the American League named as Rawlings Gold Glove winners, with right fielder Mookie Betts, center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. and second baseman Ian Kinsler receiving honors Sunday night.

Betts won the award for the third straight year while leading all major league right fielders with 20 defensive runs saved. Bradley won for the first time, and Kinsler -- acquired from the Los Angeles Angels at the trade deadline -- took home his second award.

The National League's Gold Glove winners featured a tie at first base, with the honor going to both the Atlanta Braves' Freddie Freeman (first award) and Chicago Cubs' Anthony Rizzo (second). It's the fourth tie in Gold Glove history, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

The Braves matched the Red Sox with three Gold Gloves winners, as Freeman was joined by center fielder Ender Inciarte (third) and right fielder Nick Markakis (third).
