Holliday recorded 13 RBIs over the last week of August and also led the NL with four home runs, 24 total bases and a .889 slugging percentage. He hit .370 over seven games.
In each of St. Louis' three wins last week, Holliday drove in the game-winning run. His two-RBI single in the top of the seventh was the eventual game-winner Monday, and his three-run fifth-inning homer on Saturday night was the difference-maker against the Cubs. Holliday homered again in the eighth inning of that game for his 19th career multihomer game, and he finished the night with a season-high five RBIs.
Holliday finished the week with a 3-for-4 game on Sunday against the Cubs, hitting his 16th homer of the season and driving in four. His 81 RBIs this year is a team high and his 21 game-winning RBIs leads the league.
