Moments before he set the rookie record for home runs in a single season on Monday, New York Yankees slugging outfielder Aaron Judge was named Player of the Week in the American League.

The 25-year-old Judge, who crushed home runs No. 49 and 50 against the Kansas City Royals Monday afternoon, hit .429 with five dingers last week as he continues to vie for the AL MVP award.

In the National League, two members of the Miami Marlins shared the honor as Giancarlo Stanton and Marcell Ozuna were named the co-recipients of the award.

Stanton, who is making his own MVP case, hit three home runs and now has 57 for the year, while Ozuna hit .500/.615/1.000 for the underachieving 73-82 Marlins.
