The Washington Nationals' Gio Gonzalez has won the 2012 Warren Spahn Award in a tiebreaker over Toronto's David Price.
The award is given to the top left-handed pitcher in the major leagues using a formula based on wins, strikeouts and earned run average.
The Warren Spahn Board of Directors said Thursday that Gonzalez and Price tied — with Gonzalez claiming the tiebreaker of most wins. Gonzalez's 21 wins were one better than Price — who won the award in 2010.
The award is named for Hall of Fame pitcher Warren Spahn — who holds the major league record for most wins by a left-hander with 363.
The award is presented by the Bricktown Rotary Club of Oklahoma City and the Jim Thorpe Association.
