and Shane Victorino found themselves in rare company Wednesday when they picked up Gold Gloves.

Rollins is the first National League shortstop to win three consecutive Gold Gloves since Rey Ordonez in 1997-99, and the first Phillies player to win three consecutive Gold Gloves at any position since Mike Schmidt won nine consecutive at third base from 1976-84. He also is the fifth Phillies player to win at least three Gold Gloves, joining Schmidt (10), Garry Maddox (eight), Manny Trillo (three) and Scott Rolen (three).

Victorino is the first Phillies outfielder to win consecutive Gold Glove since Maddox won eight consecutive from 1975-82.

He ranked second in the league in games (152) and innings (1364 2/3), fourth in putouts (212), sixth in total chances (607) and assists (389) and eighth in double plays (72). His career .983 fielding percentage is the second best in baseball history. Only Omar Vizquel is better with a .985 fielding percentage.
