Rowdy Tellez sets franchise single-game RBI record as Brewers crush historically bad Reds

The Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night crushed the Cincinnati Reds by a rating of 18-4 at American Family Field (box rating). The win raised the first-place Brewers to 17-8 on the season and permitted them to keep a 2 1/2-video game lead over the Cardinals in the NL Central. 

As for the Reds, the loss — their 8th in a row — dropped them to 3-21 on the season, which puts them in extremely unusual historic business: 

Just another National League group has actually lost a minimum of 21 of its very first 24, which was the 1894 Washington Senators. The 2003 Tigers likewise began the year 3-21. As well, the Reds are 1-19 in their previous 20 video games. To put a finer point on it, their .125 win portion puts them on rate to go 20-142 throughout the complete season. While nobody anticipated the Reds to reach these early depths, ownership’s choice to remove the lineup for parts makes all this something of a been worthy of result. 

On the opposite of things, Milwaukee initially baseman Rowdy Tellez made a little franchise history at the expenditure of Reds pitchers: 

Indeed, Tellez acquired 8 RBI in this one and now stands alone atop the single-game Brewers list for that specific classification. On the night, he went 4 for 6 with 2 homers (he now has 7 on the year) which double you saw above. One of those crowning achievement was a grand slam: 

Tellez has actually now homered 4 times in his previous 4 video games. Kolten Wong likewise homered for the Brewers in this one, and Andrew McCutchen went 4 for 5. 

With his record-setting night at the ballpark, Tellez on the season is now batting .267/.337/.613. The 27-year-old lefty slugger has actually been rather efficient because the Brewers got him from the Blue Jays in July of in 2015, and he’s never ever been much better than he was on Wednesday night versus the Reds.
