MILWAUKEE -

Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez has been selected the winner of the 2013 Rawlings Gold Glove Award in the National League at his position.

Gomez was joined as a finalist by Andrew McCutchen (Pirates) and Denard Span (Nationals). 

Gomez won the 10th Gold Glove Award in franchise history and became the fifth different Brewer to earn the honor, joining George Scott (first base: 1972-76), Cecil Cooper (first base: 1979-80), Sixto Lezcano (outfield: 1979) and Robin Yount (shortstop: 1982).

The Brewers had gone 30 seasons without a Gold Glove winner, which was the longest streak in the 57-year history of the award. 

Gomez recorded a career-high 12 assists this season, which trailed only the Mets’ Juan Lagares (14) for the Major League lead among center fielders. He also made five home run-saving catches and did not commit an error over his last 32 games.
