Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Adam Frazier will go into the All-Star break with a National League Player of the Week award under his belt.

In a week when the Pirates won series against the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers, Frazier had 18 hits. He recorded multiple hits in five of the seven games.

He also drove in seven runs. Frazier started the week with a five-hit performance against the Cubs that included four doubles and two RBIs in an 18-5 win July 1. The former Mississippi State standout followed that with a four-hit, three-RBI outing that propelled the Pirates to a 5-1 victory over the Cubs.

Frazier is hitting .287 this season with 89 hits, four home runs, 26 RBIs and 49 runs scored. He began last week hitting .266.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
