Ramirez and Lindor earn Silver Slugger Awards

Royals' Eric Hosmer named American League's 2017 Louisville Silver Slugger Award winner

The award goes to one player per league, per position and is selected by a vote of MLB coaches and managers.

Ramirez posted the most extra-base hits in a single game on September 3 in Detroit.

World Series champions Jose Altuve and George Springer were among the 2017 Louisville Slugger Silver Slugger Award winners announced Thursday. There were eventually 6,105 home runs this season.

Bob Forsch (1980, 1987) and Jason Marquis (2005) are the only previous Cardinals pitchers to win a Silver Slugger Award.

With 204 hits, Altuve became the first player in Major League history to be the outright leader in hits in his league in four consecutive seasons, and he became the 11th player in MLB history to record 200 hits in four consecutive seasons.

The two All-Stars are the first pair of Astros teammates to win Silver Sluggers in the same season since 1999 when Jeff Bagwell and Mike Hampton took home the award.

Altuve has already taken home several awards this season, most recently the Players Choice Awards' MLB Player of the Year and AL Most Outstanding Player, which he won Wednesday. The 37-year-old Cruz, also a Silver Slugger victor in 2015, hit.288 with 91 runs, 28 doubles, 39 home runs, 119 RBIs, a.375 on-base percentage, a.549 slugging mark and a.924 OPS in 155 games in 2017. Springer ranked among the top five for AL outfielders in runs (second), homers (fourth), on-base percentage (fifth), slugging percentage (sixth) and OPS (fifth).
