Zobrist wins AL Player of the Week award

2B/RF Ben Zobrist won the AL Player of the Week award, making it three straight such honors for the Rays.

Johnny Damon shared the award two weeks ago, and James Shields won it last week.

It's the first time a team has won three straight since June 2007, when the Tigers had three in a row.

In six games last week, Zobrist hit .440 (11-for-25) with two home runs and a major-league high 13 RBIs and five doubles. He also scored eight runs, accumulated 24 total bases and posted a .444 on-base percentage and .960 slugging percentage.
