MLB named Chase Utley the National League Player of the Week, which only seemed to make sense.
He hit .391 (9 for 23) with one double, five home runs, 14 RBIs, 25 total bases, nine runs scored, a .500 on-base percentage and a 1.087 slugging percentage from May 26 to Sunday. He hit his 20th homer of the season yesterday in his 58th game of the year. No second baseman in baseball history had hit 20 homers in fewer than 61 games. Rogers Hornsby hit his 20th in his 61st game in 1928.
