• Beltre received his 2012 Gold Glove before Saturday's game and catcher A.J. Pierzynski received his 2012 Silver Slugger Award. It was the fourth time Beltre has won the award for defensive excellence and the first for Pierzynski as the top hitting catcher in the league.
"It's awesome," Pierzynski said. "To get it is pretty cool. My son is more excited than I am. He wants to get that bat and swing it around the house."
