Milwaukee, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez won his first Gold Glove Award on Tuesday night after beating out Andrew McCutchen and Denard Span for the award, the tenth in franchise history.

The Brewers had gone 30 years without a Gold Glove winner, the longest by any team. Gomez become the fifth different Brewer to earn the honor after recording 12 assists last season. He only trailed Mets' Juan Lagares (14) for the Major League lead among center fielders.

The ex-Twin also went without an error over his last 32 games and racked up five home-run saving grabs during the season.
