Rollins, Victorino Win Gold Gloves

Jimmy Rollins and Shane Victorino each won a National League Gold Glove Award at their respective positions.  This is the eleventh time in franchise history that the Phillies have had multiple Gold Glove winners.

With the award, Rollins becomes the first Phillie to win three consecutive Gold Gloves since Mike Schmidt.  Rollins led all shortstops with a .990 fielding percentage.  His six errors were the fewest in baseball among qualified players.

Victorino wins his second consecutive Gold Glove.  Victorino had the second best fielding percentage among all outfielders (.997).

While Rollins and Victorino were honored, Chase Utley was snubbed.  Utley had a 10.8 Ultimate Zone Rating, which was the best among NL second baseman.  Orlando Hudson, the NL second base Gold Glove winner, had a UZR of -3.3.
