Davis recorded two multihit games and tapped into his signature power, homering in the final five games of the week. He brings that streak into Tuesday's series opener against the Red Sox.

Player of the Week winners

Davis has 16 homers on the season, tied for fourth most in the AL. He also drove in the winning run with a sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth in Baltimore's 6-5 win over Toronto on Thursday.

This is Davis' fourth career weekly honor, and his first since June 2013.
