Hundley shares Player of the Week honors
By Adam Berry / MLB.com
The 27-year-old Hundley shared the award, announced Monday afternoon, with Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman.
After sitting out more than a month with a right elbow injury, Hundley led the Majors with a 1.083 slugging percentage in seven games last week, recording four triples and racking up an NL-best 26 total bases. The 27-year-old catcher's .500 batting average and 12 hits tied for the NL lead, and he added eight runs and posted a .520 on-base percentage.
Hundley set career highs with four hits and three runs in Saturday's 14-1 win over the Marlins. The catcher recorded a home run, two doubles and a single, falling a triple short of the cycle for the second time in eight games since returning from the disabled list.
In Sunday's 4-3 win over the Marlins at PETCO Park, Hundley tripled to lead off the ninth inning -- his fourth of the week and his career-high fifth of the season -- and scored the winning run on Will Venable's walk-off single.
