On Monday, Major League Baseball announced that Domonic Brown, continuing to surge at the plate, had slugged his way to a second National League Player of the Week honor in as many weeks and been named the Budweiser NL Player of the Month.

In 28 May games, Brown led the NL with 12 home runs and 25 RBIs, tying Miguel Cabrera for the Major League lead in homers while ranking fourth overall in RBIs. He also led the Senior Circuit with 89 total bases, good for third in the Majors, and slugged .688, the second-highest mark in the NL.

The Phillies outfielder led the Majors in home runs (seven), RBIs (13), total bases (35) and slugging percentage (1.296) last week to become the first player this year to earn back-to-back weekly honors.

Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp (April 9, April 16) and Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen (July 9, July 16) each did so last season.

Brown is the first player in Phillies history to earn back-to-back weekly awards and first player to win two in the same season since second baseman Chase Utley did so in 2006 (May 1-7, July 24-30).
