Carlos Beltran Named National League Player Of The Week

Posted on by

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Carlos Beltran has been named the National League Player of the Week for the period ending May 13th.

In six games last week, Beltran hit .360 (9-for-25) while leading the National League with six home runs, 13 RBI, eight runs scored, 30 total bases and a 1.200 slugging percentage. The Manati, Puerto Rico native collected hits in five of the Cards’ six games last week and homered in four of them. On Friday, he tied a career-high with four hits (done 22 times — last on 5/2/2012 vs. PIT), clubbing two homers, a double and a triple with four RBI in a losing effort as visiting Atlanta won the 12-inning affair, 9-7. Beltran’s 13 total bases on the day set a new career-best, eclipsing his previous high of 12, accomplished May 12, 2011 as a member of the New York Mets.
