Giants catcher Buster Posey has been named National League Player of the Week, sharing the honor with Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche, the MLB announced Monday.
Posey was baseball's top hitter last week, posting a .565 batting average (13-for-23) while leading the NL in hits and runs scored (8).
The 27-year-old also had the league's highest slugging percentage (.957) last week and ranked among league leaders in on-base percentage (3rd, .593) and RBI (T-3rd, 8).
On Tuesday, Posey's season-high four-RBI game led the Giants to a 12-7 victory at Colorado.
