Josh Hamilton, Colby Lewis share weekly award

Left fielder Josh Hamilton and right-hander Colby Lewis are the co-players of the week in the American League. It's the first time since 2002 that teammates have share the award.

Hamilton hit .370 with four homers and a baseball-leading 13 RBIs in seven games, also posting a .889 slugging percentage and a .443 on-base percentage.

Lewis won both of this starts, posting a .180 ERA and striking out 15 batters in 15 innings. He also had two hits Sunday, including a two-out two-run single in the sixth against Yovani Gallardo.

Hamilton is also creeping up on Nelson Cruz to be an All-Star starter. Cruz slipped to third in balloting behind Ichiro Suzuki and Carl Crawford, and Hamilton is 87,000 votes back in fourth.

Vladimir Guerrero is a shoo-in to win the DH vote.
