NEW YORK (AP) – Philadelphia pitcher Steve Carlton and San Francisco outfielder Jack Clark were named co-Players of the Week by the National League Monday. 


Clark collected 14 hits in 26 at bats over the past week for a .538 average. He scored 10 runs, drove in four, had two homers and three game-winning RBI. He raised his season's average to .303 as the Giants won five of seven games during the week. 


Carlton won both of his start's during the week to increase his major league lead to 13 victories. The Phillies' left-hander increased his strikeout total to 135, another major league high.
