Boston Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts and Los Angeles Dodgers starter Alex Wood were named the American League and National League Players of the Week, respectively, on Monday.

Betts hit .375/.483/.917 with three home runs, four doubles, five walks, and 11 RBIs in six games, while striking out just twice in 24 at-bats. The 24-year-old's three-run homer against the Milwaukee Brewers in the ninth inning Thursday lifted the Red Sox to a 4-1 win.

Wood follows teammate Cody Bellinger as the second straight Dodger to win the award. The left-hander, who started the season in the bullpen, went 2-0 and tossed 11 shutout innings over back-to-back starts against the Pittsburgh Pirates and Colorado Rockies, striking out 21 and walking just two.
