Yelich joins Mookie Betts of the Boston Red Sox as the only two to hit for the cycle this season, and became the eighth player in franchise history to achieve the feat. He is the first to do so for Milwaukee since George Kottaras did it against the Houston Astros on September 3rd, 2011. He also tied a franchise record for hits in a game, as he had six of the Brewers' 22 knocks on the night. And all of this comes just one night after a two-home run effort in a loss.
Aguilar's game-winner came off of Raisel Iglesias, who suffered his third loss out of the Reds' bullpen. That was the fourth home run of the game for the Brew-Crew, as Yelich's blast was a two-run shot, Mike Moustakas went deep, as did Jonathan Schoop. They got much-needed insurance in the 10th on Erik Kratz' RBI single, as Brandon Dixon went deep in the bottom half of the inning to make things interesting.
Jeremy Jeffress gave up Dixon's long ball, but lasted two innings to earn his seventh victory of the season.
The Reds went deep five times on the night, including a reviewed long ball for the relief pitcher Michael Lorenzen. Billy Hamilton, Tucker Barnhart, and Eugenio Suarez also left the ballpark, including Suarez for the 30th time this season. On the other side, the Brewers extended their Great American Ballpark streak to 21 straight games with a home run.
These two teams will finish up their series with a matinee on Thursday afternoon.
