Christian Yelich and the Milwaukee Brewers were visiting the Cincinnati Reds today in the final matchup of a three-game series between the NL Central foes.
While the Brewers couldn’t muster a win on the day, falling to the Reds 14-11, as the score indicates, there were several moments of excitement along the way.
Christian Yelich breaks his own cycle record
While losing the game is never reason for celebration, it’s tough not to be in awe of the 2018 NL MVP and Brewers outfielder, Christian Yelich, who managed to hit for the cycle on five plate appearances on Wednesday.
In his first at-bat, Yelich knocked a ground rule double over the center field wall.
Later in the top of the third inning, Yelich smashed a 372-foot three-run home run to get the Brew Crew on the board.
