Matt Kemp Named National League Player Of The Month For April

Posted on by

Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp has been unanimously voted the National League Player of the Month for April.

Through 23 April contests, Kemp led the Majors with a .417 (35-for-84) batting average and 12 home runs while ranking tops in the National League in RBI (25), hits (35), runs (24) and slugging percentage (.893), and second in on-base percentage (.490). The Oklahoma native’s 12 April homers set a new franchise record.

The 27-year-old’s sizzling bat played a key role in the Dodgers’ National League-best 16-7 record in April, the team’s best start since 1983. On Saturday, April 28th, Kemp clubbed his fifth career walk-off homer in the 10th inning of the Dodgers’ 4-3 victory over Washington at Dodger Stadium.
