ST. LOUIS -- Cincinnati third baseman Scott Rolen captured his eighth Gold Glove on Wednesday when the National League winners were announced.

The award was Rolen's first since 2006, as he won a Gold Glove for his third different team. He was a four-time winner with the Cardinals and also won three for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Other winners included St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina and Philadelphia outfielder Shane Victorino, both of whom captured their third straight awards.

Molina threw out 49-percent of would-be base stealers, committed just five errors and allowed seven passed balls.

Victorino, who joins Gary Maddox as the only two outfielders in club history to have won at least three awards, was joined in the outfield by Houston's Michael Bourn, who won last year, and Colorado's Carlos Gonzalez, a first-time winner.

Other infield winners included St. Louis' Albert Pujols, who also won in 2006, Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and Cincinnati second baseman Brandon Phillips. The award was Tulowitzki's first, while Phillips was also recognized in 2008.

Cincinnati pitcher Bronson Arroyo was also a first-time winner.

The awards are voted on by managers and coaches. The voters may not select players on their own teams, and can vote only for players in their own league.

The American League winners were announced on Tuesday.
