On Tuesday it was announced that Bruce Bochy, who recently led the San Francisco Giants to a World Series title, finished third in this year's NL Manager of the Year award voting.

The Washington Nationals' Davey Johnson won the award with 131 points and 77 first place votes with Cincinnati's Dusty Baker finishing second, totaling 77 points and five first place votes. Bochy finished with three first place votes and 66 points overall.

The award -- which was voted on at the end of the regular season, and prior to the start of the playoffs -- reflected how the three teams finished in the standings. Johnson's Nationals finished with an MLB best 98-64 record and an NL East title, while Baker's Reds finished a game off Washington's pace at 97-65 overall. Meanwhile San Francisco finished at 94-67 overall as winners of the NL West.

Had Bochy won, it would've been his second career NL Manager of the Year nod.

He also took home the award in 1996 as manager of the San Diego Padres.
