Adrian Gonzalez was named the American League Player of the Week.

In seven games, Gonzalez batted .393 (11-for-28) with a double, 5 home runs, 9 RBIs and 8 runs scored.

His third-inning double to left off A's starter Guillermo Moscoso in the first game of Saturday's double-header sweep of Oakland marked Gonzalez's 183d hit of the season, his career high.

Gonzalez currently leads the majors with .345 batting average, 298 total bases, 184 hits, and is second overall in RBI (103) and is tied for third in extra-base hits (65), fourth in doubles (39) and ranks fifth in on-base percentage (.406).

This was Gonzalez's fifth weekly honor of his career and the second this season. He also won on May 24.
