Molina earns fifth straight Gold Glove Award

By Jenifer Langosch

ST. LOUIS -- Already considered the gold standard at his position, Yadier Molina received more gold hardware to display as proof of that excellence.

During an hour-long program on ESPN2 Tuesday night, Molina was announced as the Rawlings Gold Glove winner, sealing the fifth straight year in which he has been voted the league's best defensive catcher. Molina becomes the first Cardinals player since Jim Edmonds to receive a Gold Glove Award for that many consecutive seasons.

"It's always such a great honor to win the Gold Glove Award," Molina said. "It's something that you work hard for, and it's nice to be voted as a top player at your position."
