Who else would give the Milwaukee Brewers an early lead in an important game other than Christian Yelich? The dude has been sizzling since the All-Star break, and to further his case for NL MVP, he came through with the first run of Game 163 with an RBI single up the middle.
This game still counts towards regular season statistics, and believe it or not, Yelich is still in the mix for the NL triple crown. He leads in batting average already, and he's just one RBI behindJavy Baez for the lead.
At the moment, Christian Yelich is 1 HR and 1 RBI from the first NL triple crown since 1937. Today’s game counts as a regular-season game.— Bill Shaikin (@BillShaikin) October 1, 2018
Yelich still needs a homer, but would we be shocked if he went deep again? Nope.
