Last week's homer barrages from Pittsburgh's Sean Rodriguez and Arizona's Brandon Drury have earned the two Co-National League Player of the Week honors.

Rodriguez hit .414 with five home runs and 12 RBIs in eight games last week, and he will enter Tuesday with homers in three straight games. Rodriguez hit a game-winning pinch-hit three-run homer in the top of the ninth Tuesday to propel the Pirates to a 5-3 win over the Phillies, and he added a solo shot and three more RBIs two days later in Pittsburgh's 15-2 romp of Philadelphia.
