MILWAUKEE (AP) —d book.Milwaukee’s streaking slugger became the first major leaguer to hit for the cycle twice in one season against the same team http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , driving in four runs to lead the Brewers over the Cincinnati Reds 8-0 on Monday night.“There’s been so many great players to play this game,” said Yelich, acquired in an offseason trade with Miami. “It just shows how freaky, I guess, that is. A lot of luck goes into that. It’s hard enough to get four hits in a Major League Baseball game, yet alone have them all be the right ones and the right sequence.”Less than three weeks after his cycle in Cincinnati, Yelich accomplished the feat against the last-place Reds once again to help the Brewers in their playoff pursuit. Milwaukee remained 2½ games behind the first-place Cubs in the NL Central and three games up in the wild-card race. Chicago won 5-1 at Arizona.Yelich singled in the first inning, doubled in the second, launched a two-run homer in the fifth and completed the cycle when he added a two-run triple in the sixth. With the Brewers nursing a large lead, he was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the eighth.“I honestly don’t even know how to describe it,” Yelich said. “I don’t know if it’s really set in yet, but it’s definitely crazy and you try to enjoy it as much as possible. It’s nice to do it at home, too, in front of the home fans. It was a pretty exciting moment.”Yelich’s huge second half has turned him into a top contender for the NL MVP award. He also hit for the cycle when he went 6 for 6 in a 13-12 comeback victory on Aug. 29 at Cincinnati, making him the fifth player to turn the trick twice in one season — and first in Brewers history.“There’s no question that he’s hot right now,” Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani said. “He’s doing some amazing things. I know him from Miami. I know that he works his butt off. They all projected that he was going to be a top-of-the-league hitter. But I think if I make my pitches, I give myself a chance to get him out.”The previous player with two cycles in one season was Aaron Hill in 2012.Yelich put the Brewers up 4-0 in the fifth, following a walk to Curtis Granderson with his 31st homer.Domingo Santana Kirk Gibson Jersey , who hit 30 homers last year for the Brewers but spent most of this season at Triple-A, opened the fifth with his second pinch-hit home run in two games.Wade Miley (5-2) labored through five innings and allowed five hits. He had two runners aboard in the second, third and fourth.Josh Hader struck out the side in the sixth, and Brandon Woodruff finished with three spotless innings for his first save.“I didn’t say much, but I told (manager Craig) Counsell, I’m good, I can go back out,” said Miley, who has permitted two earned runs or fewer in seven straight starts. “Obviously, you’ve got Hader in the bullpen, anybody will hand the ball over to Hader. Then Domingo pinch-hits and hits a homer, so I told Counsell he made the right decision.”DeSclafani (7-6) gave up four runs and seven hits with two walks in five innings.Milwaukee extended the lead to 8-0 in the sixth, capped by Yelich’s two-run triple to right-center.The Brewers, who totaled three runs in losing their previous two games to Pittsburgh, took a 1-0 lead in the third. Granderson walked and Yelich lined a double to right off the glove of diving first baseman Joey Votto. Lorenzo Cain followed with a sacrifice fly.Yelich is batting .500 (24 for 48) with seven homers, 17 RBIs and 12 runs against the Reds this season.“We really need wins as a team,” he said. “Every win is huge for us. Obviously we didn’t finish that Pittsburgh series up like we would have hoped, and it’s best to come out tonight and get this series off to a good start.”MORE YELICHAccording to the Elias Sports Bureau http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , the other players with multiple cycles in a single season were Hill for Arizona in 2012, Brooklyn’s Babe Herman in 1931, St. Louis’ Tip O’Neill in 1887 and Cincinnati’s Long John Reilly in 1883. Yelich is the third active player with multiple cycles in his career, joining Adrian Beltre (three) and Carlos Gomez (two).SANTANA RETURNSSantana had 30 homers and 85 RBIs in 525 at-bats last season with Milwaukee, playing in 151 games, including 138 starts in right field. The offseason acquisitions of Yelich and Cain made for a crowded outfield. Santana never got untracked and was hitting .249 with just three homers and 17 RBIs when he was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs on June 23. Since being recalled on Sept. 1, he is 6 for 13 with two homers and two doubles, all coming as a pinch-hitter.UP NEXTReds: RHP Michael Lorenzen (3-1, 3.21 ERA) will make his first start since 2015, when he made 21 starts as a rookie. His last 151 appearances have been in relief.Brewers: RHP Chase Anderson (9-7, 3.85) is 3-0 in three starts against the Reds this season. He’s 5-1 with a 2.98 ERA in 10 career starts vs. Cincinnati. Anderson has allowed 29 homers, tied for most in the NL. The Minnesota Twins reportedly agreed to contract extensions with both outfielder Max Kepler and shortstop Jorge Polanco on Thursday.According to ESPN's Jeff Passan, Kepler's extension is worth $35 million over five years with a sixth-year option for $10 million, including a $1 million buyout. Passan added that Polanco agreed to a five-year, $25.8 million deal with two club options.The 26-year-old Kepler is set to enter his fifth MLB season and has spent his entire career with the Twins. Last season, the Germany native hit just .224, but he popped a career-high 20 home runs, scored a career-high 80 runs and registered 58 RBI.Kepler's most productive season to date was 2017 Victor Martinez Jersey , when he slashed .243/.312/.425 with 19 homers, 69 RBI and 67 runs.Minnesota had previously avoided arbitration with Kepler for 2019 by signing him to a one-year, $3.1 million deal.Polanco, 25, has appeared in games across five MLB seasons, but he has only been a significant part of the Twins' roster over the past three.Last season, Polanco appeared in 77 games and hit .288 with six home runs and 42 RBI. It was a significant drop-off from his career year in 2017, when he slashed .256/.313/.410 with 13 homers, 74 RBI, 60 runs scored and 13 stolen bases.Part of the issue for Polanco in 2018 was the fact that he was suspended 80 games for violating MLB's policy against performance-enhancing drugs.Both Kepler and Polanco are penciled in as starters and important parts of Minnesota's lineup in 2019 and beyond.After surprisingly making the playoffs in 2017, the Twins took a step back last season by going 78-84. With the additions of sluggers Nelson Cruz and Jonathan Schoop, as well as the continued development of their younger players, however, Minnesota has a chance to be far more competitive in 2019.
