The Nationals' standout outfielder was named the National League Player of the Week on Monday for the second consecutive week, becoming just the 10th player in the past 40 years to manage that feat. Harper led all NL hitters in batting average (.522) and on-base percentage (.656).
Harper led Major League hitters in runs scored (10), total bases (25) and walks (nine) last week, and the Nats rode his hot streak to a 5-2 road trip. Harper also led his NL peers in slugging (1.087), tied for the lead in RBIs (nine) and tied for second in home runs (three) and hits (12).
Harper had a three-hit game and a home run on Sunday, and he had three hits in the Nationals' 10-0 victory over the Padres on Friday. He drew at least one walk in every game last week, and he set a career best with three free passes on Thursday. Harper leads the Majors with 36 walks.
