Montreal Expos first baseman Nick Johnson, who led the National League with 10 RBI, has been named Bank of America Presents the National League Player of the Week for August 9-15, 2004. Bank of America, the official bank of Major League Baseball, is the presenting sponsor of the National League and American League Player of the Week Awards, which reflect the bank's long-standing tradition of promoting and recognizing higher standards of accomplishment.

In six games last week, Johnson recorded a slugging percentage of .889 and a .600 on-base percentage. He hit .444, going 8-for-18 with two doubles, two home runs and three runs scored. Johnson hit his second career grand slam on Saturday during Montreal's 8-3 victory over Houston, which extended the club's winning streak to a season-high seven games.

Other nominees this past week included Johnson's Montreal teammate, Brad Wilkerson (.458, 3 doubles, 2 HR, 3 RBI); Pittsburgh's Jose Castillo (.471, 2 HR, 8 RBI); Albert Pujols (.360, 5 HR, 7 RBI) of St. Louis; San Diego's Adam Eaton (2-0, 4.91 ERA, 12 SO); and San Francisco's J.T. Snow (.533, 3 HR, 5 RBI), Michael Tucker (.524, 2 HR, 6 RBI) and Jason Schmidt (1-0. 0.00 ERA, 1 SHO, 11 SO). Snow set career-highs with three home runs and five runs scored during the Giants' 16-6 win at Philadelphia on Friday.

Tourneau, the world's largest watch store, is proud to award the Bank of America Presents the National League Player of the Week Nick Johnson with a Tourneau luxury Swiss timepiece from its Safari collection.
