Ortiz shines

World Series MVP David Ortiz won his sixth Silver Slugger award as the top designated hitter in voting by major league managers and coaches.

Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano, Detroit third baseman Miguel Cabrera and Minnesota catcher Joe Mauer each were selected for the fifth time.

Silver Slugger awards are given to the top offensive player at each position in the American and National Leagues. They were handed out last night on the MLB Network.
