Cincinnati Reds: Scooter Gennett earns NL honor

Cincinnati Reds fans are not the only ones who noticed Scooter Gennett’s hot streak.

So did the folks who select the National League Player of the Week.

Of course, the numbers the second baseman put up made him a pretty obvious candidate.

How did the past seven days go?

Well, he only went 12 for 24 with three homers, 10 RBIs and two doubles in six games. Gennett also scored six runs.

He led the league in hit, slugging percentage and total bases.

Gennett is the first player to win the NL Player of the Week award twice this season, having done so in the second week of May as well.

In the American League, Francisco Lindor of the Indians is also a two-time winner of the player of the week award this season.
