The outfielder achieved the feat at Great American Ballpark three weeks ago against their division rivals, as this one took place on his home field of Miller Park. He drove in four on the night for the Brewers, who stayed 2.5 games back of first place in the NL Central Division behind the Cubs, who beat the Arizona Diamondbacks, 5-1.
The former Miami Marlin had a single in the first, double in the second, home run in the fifth, and then completed the cycle with a two-run triple in the sixth. He was later lifted for a pinch-hitter in the eighth, as he was unable to get close to his 6-for-6 performance from his first cycle on August 29th. He is the first player in Brewers history with two cycles in the same season.
The last player to do what Yelich has done this season was Aaron Hill, who did so as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays in 2012.
Domingo Santana added a pinch-hit blast for the Brewers, who earned their 47th home win of the season. Wade Miley got through five innings and allowed five hits in his fifth win, but he had to work out of jams in the second, third, and fourth innings. Anthony DeSclafani dropped to 7-6 for the Reds after giving up four runs on seven hits over five innings.
These two teams will play two more times in Milwaukee, as the Reds look to play spoiler in the Brewers' division hopes.
