Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock has been named the National League Player of the Week presented by W.B. Mason for the period ending May 6th.

Other candidates for NL Player of the Week honors were Pollock’s teammate, closer Brad Boxberger (0.00 ERA, 1-0, 3 SV, 4.0 IP, 1 H, 6 SO); Washington Nationals teammates Wilmer Difo (.524, 2 HR, 5 RBI 6 BB, .630 OBP), Matt Adams (.360, 5 HR, 8 RBI) and Max Scherzer (1-0, 2.13 ERA, 12.2 IP, 8 H, H, 23 SO); San Francisco Giants teammates Brandon Crawford (.478, 11 H, 1 HR, 7 RBI) and Andrew Suárez (1-0, 1.46 ERA, 12.1 IP); and Atlanta Braves outfielder Nick Markakis (.520, 13 H, 3 2B, 2 HR, 7 RBI).

After earning Budweiser Presents NL Player of the Month honors for April, Pollock began May on a sizzling note, batting .423 (11-for-26) with four home runs, eight RBI, five runs scored, a double, a triple and two stolen bases. The 2015 All-Star slugged an NL-best 1.000, registered a .448 on-base percentage and led the Senior Circuit with 26 total bases. Pollock closed out April with three solo home runs in an 8-5 win over the NL West rival Los Angeles Dodgers, marking the first three-homer game of his Major League career. The next day, the University of Notre Dame product hit a home run off three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw in Arizona’s 4-3 win. Pollock went 8-for-16 in the four-game set vs. Los Angeles. In a weekend series against the defending World Champion Houston Astros, Pollock played a key role in helping the D-backs take the last two games, driving in two runs apiece in close victories on both Saturday (4-3) and Sunday (3-1). Saturday featured Pollock’s ninth inning RBI single to win the game, and Sunday brought his game-turning triple against Astros ace Justin Verlander. This is Pollock’s fourth career Player of the Week honors and he is the second D-back to win this season, joining teammate Patrick Corbin.

Four Dodger pitchers combined to make history in Mexico on Friday night, as teammates Walker Buehler, Tony Cingrani, Yimi Garcia and Adam Liberatore combined to blank the San Diego Padres at Estadio de Beisbol Monterrey, the first regular season games in the country since 1999. On a night that began with a ceremonial first pitch from Fernando Valenzuela, it was MLB’s first no-hitter ever outside of the United States or Canada and the 12th combined no-hitter in history, including the first for the Dodgers.
