tickets for any Major League Baseball game
Anaheim Angels outfielder Jose Guillen has been named the American League Player of the Week for the period of May 3-9.

Guillen led or tied for the Major League lead in seven offensive categories -- batting average (.583), slugging percentage (1.125), on-base percentage (.643), hits (14), total bases (27), home runs (4), and RBI (11) -- as the Angels' nine-game winning streak improved their record to a Major League-best 22-10. The 27-year-old Guillen hit safely in all seven games last week, collecting five multi-hit games, and had three consecutive games in which he hit a home run with three RBI. This was the first career weekly award for Guillen.

Other candidates for the weekly award were Guillen's teammate, Troy Glaus (.435, 3 HR, 6 RBI, 12 R); Baltimore's Miguel Tejada (.391, 2 HR, tied for AL high with 11 RBI); Boston's Kevin Millar (.522, 2 RBI); Detroit's Carlos Guillen (.455, 1 HR, 8 RBI); and Michael Young (.429, 3 HR, 9 RBI) of Texas. On Saturday night, Carlos Guillen and Young each had a hand in the highest-scoring fifth inning of all-time during the Rangers' 16-15 win -- the Tigers scored eight times in the top of the frame, while Texas answered with 10 runs in the bottom of the inning to come back from a 10-run deficit for the first time in franchise history.

The lone pitcher on this week's ballot was Angels right-hander John Lackey, who threw a three-hitter on Friday in a 1-0 victory over Tampa Bay. The third-year hurler has won three straight starts.

Tourneau, the world's largest watch store, is proud to award American League Player of the Week Jose Guillen with a Tourneau luxury Swiss timepiece from its Safari collection.
