Willingham, Lincecum named NL Co-Players of the Week

Nationals outfielder Josh Willingham and Giants right-hander Tim Lincecum have been named National League Co-Players of the Week presented by Bank of America for the period ending August 2nd.

Willingham went 10-for-23 [.435] with three home runs and 11 RBIs. He collected four multi-hit games while posting a .913 slugging percentage and a .519 on-base percentage.

On July 27th, Willingham had the game of his life, hitting two grand slams at Miller Park to lead the Nationals to a 14-6 win over the Brewers. Willingham became the 13th player in Major League history to accomplish the feat and the first player to do so since Boston’s Bill Mueller in 2003.

The eight-RBI game marked a career high for Willingham and matched a franchise single-game mark, including Montreal.

As for Lincecum, he didn’t give up an earned run in 17 innings, while striking out a combined 23 strikeouts against the Pirates and Phillies.

I’m a Giants fan, but I think Willingham was the player of the week. What a great week for a team that needs something to cheer about!
