NEW YORK -- In what was one of Major League Baseball's easiest decisions of the season, Giants right-fielder Hunter Pence was named National League player of the week on Monday.

Pence hit six homers last week and drove in 19 runs. He led all MLB hitters in both categories and also had a .448 average and 1.103 slugging percentage. Pence had five homers and 12 RBIs in a four-game series against the Dodgers, becoming the only Giant other than Willie mays to homer in every game of a four-game set with the Dodgers.

"Man, he's some kind of locked-in right now," Ryan Vogelsong said after Sunday's win. "I don't think I've ever seen anyone that hot."

Pence was named player of the week in May of 2007 and September of 2010 while playing for the Houston Astros. He's the third Giant to take the award this season, joining Buster Posey and Brandon Belt.
