Roy Oswalt, who capped a 2-0 week with eight shutout innings against Texas on Sunday in Houston's 1-0 victory over the Rangers, was named National League Co-Player of the Week on Monday along with Los Angeles third baseman Adrian Beltre for the week ending June 27.

Oswalt was 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA for the week that was capped by the right-hander's snapping of the Rangers' eight-game winning streak. In his last 16 innings, Oswalt struck out a league-high 14 batters, did not walk anyone and allowed three runs on 13 hits. On the season the right-hander has split 12 decisions and leads the Houston staff in innings pitched with 109 1/3.

Beltre hit .444 and drove in 10 runs last week while tying for the league high with three homers. He also recorded an .815 slugging percentage and a .448 on-base percentage. His 22 total bases and 10 RBIs led all National League hitters for the week. Beltre also scored five runs.

Other players nominated for the weekly award were Johnny Estrada of the Braves (.550, four doubles, six RBIs); Milwaukee's Keith Ginter (.550, two doubles, five RBIs) and Doug Davis (2-0, 2.70 ERA, 12 SO); Deivi Cruz (.542, four doubles, seven RBIs) and Ray Durham (.414, three doubles, two triples, five RBIs) of the Giants; Mike Piazza of the Mets (.478, three doubles, one homer, four RBIs); Jason Bay of the Pirates (.320, three homers, nine RBIs); Larry Walker of the Rockies (.389, three homers, five RBIs); and Carl Pavano of the Marlins (2-0, 2.57 ERA, 13 SO).
