Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

Miami Marlins pitcher Mark Buehrle won his fourth consecutive Gold Glove award and his first in the National League.

Miami Marlins pitcher Mark Buehrle won the 2012 Rawlings Gold Glove award as the best defensive pitcher in the National League. This is Buehrle's fourth consecutive Gold Glove, and it's his first in the National League.

Buehrle won the award from 2009 to '11 with the Chicago White Sox before heading to Miami to join the Marlins during last year's offseason. Buehrle said this year's award and his first Gold Glove mean more to him than his middle two.

With no errors on the year, Buehrle put up a perfect fielding percentage in 2012. He also had an impressive Defensive Runs Saved Above Average, a statistic compiled by Baseball Info Solutions. According to the statistic, Buehrle was 12 runs above average, best in the major league at the pitcher position.

Buehrle was the only Marlin to win the award this year. Miami finished the season 69-93, last place in the National League East Division.
