MILWAUKEE – Christian Yelich with & # 39 is the intention of carrying out this National League MVP award in a single year.
After agreeing on homering league record in each of his team's first four games with a solo shot in the first inning, Yelich delivered to wear a two-run double off Jordan Hicks
After agreeing on homering league record in each of his team's first four games with a solo shot in the first inning, Yelich delivered to wear a two-run double off Jordan Hicks at the bottom of the ninth to seal the 5- 4 victory over the Cardinals at Miller Park.
With the Brewers down a run, Ben Gamel led off the ninth with a double and Lorenzo Cain reached on infield hit off the glove of Hicks. Yelich then lined an opposite-field double to the gap. Cardinals center fielder Harrison Bader was trying to make a diving stop, but the ball caromed off his glove, giving Cain enough time to motor all the way home winning streak.
Return deprived Brewers right-handers Corbin Burnes loss in his first league start, after Byrnes struck out 12 batters, but the trio gives the Cardinals home run before heading to a 4-1 deficit after five innings.
