Dickerson earns first NL Player of Week honor

Corey Dickerson became the fourth Rockies player this season to be named the National League Player of the Week, after leading the Majors in RBIs and total bases over the past week.

Over seven games, the left fielder hit .393 (11-for-28) with four doubles, three homers, 11 RBIs, six runs scored and 24 total bases. He led the league in doubles and homers.

"I'm just doing the same thing every day," Dickerson said on Sunday. "Having the confidence every day no matter who is pitching. I'm keeping my approach, staying aggressive and not giving up my at-bat, whether it's early or late in games or whether we're behind or ahead."

Charlie Blackmon, Justin Morneau, Troy Tulowitzki and Dickerson make up the Colorado foursome to receive the honor this season. It's Dickerson's first career weekly honor.

Dickerson is riding a career-best 12-game hitting streak, batting .417 with five doubles, one triple, four homers, 17 RBIs and 11 runs over that span.

Dickerson hit his first career three-run homer on Monday, then went yard again on Tuesday with a solo shot. It was his third homer in three days, and the first time in his career he's homered in three straight.
