CINCINNATI -- There have been some profound slumps for Reds center fielder Drew Stubbs, including a 0-for-32 stretch just before the All-Star break. As of Monday, Stubbs was in his hottest stretch of the season and came in batting .333 (16-for-48) with three home runs and 13 RBIs over his previous 13 games.
"Not a single thing is different," Stubbs said. "That's the thing in this game, you have a lot of ups and downs and I worked just as hard when I was struggling as I have recently. That comes with sticking with your routine that's best for you and letting things play out."
Stubbs was named the National League's co-Player of the Week on Monday, sharing honors with Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez. Stubbs batted .370 last week with three homers and 10 RBIs to net the award for the first time in his career.
