That is until now. Gomez was awarded the NL Player of the Week last, as he hit .346 (9-for-26) with four home runs and scored 10 runs. He was also first among National Leaguers with 10 RBI and three stolen bases.
The Santiago, Dominican Republic native Gomez already has a career high nine home runs this season. Though the Brewers are more than likely out of the playoff picture, Gomez could possibly see a career high in RBI, walks, and stolen bases as well. Some consolation for a bad year as a team.
Gomez’s Milwaukee teammate, and fellow Dominican, Aramis Ramirez (.417, 10 H, 4 2B, 2 HR, 6 RBI) also received some consideration for the player of the week award. Ramirez won the Dominican Player of the Week award earlier this season. He is from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
