The Cincinnati Reds will be happy to see the back of Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich this season.With a triple in the bottom of the sixth inning Monday night, Yelich completed his second cycle of the 2018 campaign. His first cycle came against the Reds as well.Milwaukee Brewers BrewersWith his triple in the 6th, ChristianYelich became the first Brewers player to hit for the cycle since... Christian Yelich (8/29/18 at Cincinnati). Todays performance was the 9th cycle in franchise history. #ThisIsMyCrew ODCDF7WrcHThe Athletic's Joel Luckhaupt and C. Trent Rosecrans shared these stats from Yelich's feat:Joel Luckhaupt jluckhauptChristian Yelich had more cycles against the Reds in the last 20 days than the Reds hitters have in the last 59 seasons.C. Trent Rosecrans ctrentCORRECTION -- Yelich is the FIFTH player to hit for the cycle twice in one season. FIRST to do it against one team in the same seasonThe 2018 All-Star singled in the first inning to get his night started. Then came a double in the third inning, which put Curtis Granderson in position to score the first run of the game. Yelich later brought Granderson home with a two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth to make it a 4-0 game.MLB MLB.ChristianYelich likes to keep Bernie_Brewer on his toes. PILU3jS9o2Monday's game won't win Yelich the National League MVP Award, but it's an example of why he at least warrants mention in the MVP conversation.He entered the night batting .313 with 30 home runs, 89 RBI and a .556 slugging percentage. His 5.7 WAR was best among NL position players http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-robin-ventura-jersey , per FanGraphs.The Brewers are 2.5 games back of the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central but are three games up on the St. Louis Cardinals for the first of two wild-card spots. Should Milwaukee return to the postseason for the first time since 2011, Yelich's MVP case may be too strong to ignore.
