Brewers' Christian Yelich becomes first MLB player to hit for cycle three times against same opponent

USATI

The last-place Cincinnati Reds damaged the first-place Milwaukee Brewers for 28 runs in 3 video games in taking the series that concluded on Wednesday. In that series ending — a 14-11 win for the host Reds — Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich offered a little bit of alleviation for his group by pinching hit the cycle. 

Yelich, who wound up going 4 for 5 with 3 RBI and 2 runs scored on the day, struck a ground-rule double in the very first; homered in the 3rd; and singled in the 5th. Then in the ninth, Yelich tripled to finish the cycle: 

That 3rd profession cycle ties him for the all-time lead with John Reilly, Bob Meusel, Babe Herman, Adrián Beltré, and Trea Turner. Yelich, nevertheless, has the difference of having all 3 of his record-tying 3 cycles come versus the Reds (he formerly cycled versus Cincy in August of 2019 and after that in September of that very same year). Those prior 2, nevertheless, was available in a winning effort. 

Yelich, 30, entered this video game with a rather frustrating slash line of .234/.339/.411 for the season, now those numbers depend on .259/.356/.482. Yelich over the last few years has actually stopped working to match the peak of 2017-18 — the peak that resulted in his $215 million extension with Milwaukee — however on Wednesday he offered a little suggestion of his MVP ceiling at the plate. 

The Brewers keep a 2 1/2-video game lead over the Cardinals in the NL Central. The Reds, meantime, have actually won 4 of their last 6 after beginning the season with a 3-22 mark.
