While Cozart came into Friday batting .253 with 14 home runs and 30 RBIs, he led all NL rookies in total bases (200), hits (122), extra-base hits (47) and multi-hit games (35), was second in runs (65) and doubles (30), and third in homers.
Frazier entered leading rookies with 58 RBIs, a .558 slugging percentage and was second with 18 homers, 179 total bases, 44 extra-base hits, and third with a .293 average.
"It's cool. If I had a vote, I'd vote for Todd, too," Cozart said Friday. "With Joey [Votto] out, he's been huge. Just to be in the conversation and have two guys on the team, young guys, contributing like we have is cool. You can't ask for a better rookie year being on a team that's in first place and competing for a championship. We're excited."
Cozart has been on a tear of late, riding a career-high 11-game hitting streak after hitting a double in the first inning of the series opener against the Cardinals. He hit .349 (15-for-43) over his past 10 games. As the stretch run nears, it's a perfect time be in a hitting groove.
"They always say it's not how you start, but how you finish," Cozart said. "I started out kind of hot, and, obviously, everybody knows I went on a cold streak. I've been hot, cold, hot and cold. Hopefully I can continue this for the rest of the season. It's very important to finish strong."
