BRAUN NAMED PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, who led the National League with 12 RBI last week, has been named National League Player of the Week for the period ending May 10.

In seven games last week, Braun hit .458 (11-24) with eight runs scored, three home runs and three doubles. The 25-year-old posted a .958 slugging percentage and recorded a .567 on-base percentage.

Braun, a 2008 N.L. All-Star, connected for the second grand slam of his career and recorded a career-high six RBI on May 6 at Cincinnati. Ryan's two-run homer in the eighth inning against the Chicago Cubs on May 8 rallied the Brewers for a 3-2 win. On May 9 against Chicago, he reached base in all five of his plate appearances, going 2-for-2 with a double, a homer, two RBI, two walks and a hit-by-pitch.

Braun (.345, 8 HR, 28 RBI), who competed for Team USA in the 2009 World Baseball Classic, recorded four multi-RBI games and four multi-hit games last week.

Milwaukee shortstop J.J. Hardy, who hit .360 with two home runs and 10 RBI, also was nominated for the honor.
