Phillips wins 4th Gold Glove
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Quote from Brandon Phillips on winning his 4th Rawlings Gold Glove:
"Wow, hard work pays off. It's an honor to have the NL managers and coaches select me to join this elite group of the league's best defenders. If it weren't for my Reds coaches, staff and teammates, especially Zack Cozart, for sticking with me even though I wasn't 100 percent toward the end of the season, this wouldn't have happened," Phillips said.
"I take pride in my defense and try to go out there to make the pitching staff feel comfortable while they're on the mound. I like being the pitchers best friend. People overlook defense these days. Offense sells tickets, but defense wins championships. My family and I are happy to win this award again, and this one belongs to my city, Cincinnati."
