Rockies first baseman C.J. Cron named NL Player of the Week

Cron hit for a .556 batting average across five games and clubbed four home runs to go along with 16 RBI.

DENVER — Rockies first baseman C.J. Cron was on fire over the weekend against Miami. 

The rest of Major League Baseball took notice. 

Cron was named the National Player of the Week on Monday for his torrid five-game stretch against the Cubs and Marlins. He hit for a .556 batting average (10-18) and clubbed four home runs to go along with 16 RBI. 

Cron also made Rockies history, becoming the first franchise player to ever hit three grand slams in a single season, with his latest coming against Miami on Sunday. 

He also notched 13 RBI in Colorado's series against the Marlins, tying Hall of Famer Larry Walker for the most in a three-game series in franchise history. 

The Rockies are off on Monday before returning Tuesday with a road game against the Houston Astros.
