VIDEO: Keston Hiura Rips 1st Home Run of September as Brewers Claw Back vs Padres

Keston Hiura hits first homer of September against the Padres.

Milwaukee Brewers phenom prospect Keston Hiura last hit a home run on Aug. 28 against the St. Louis Cardinals. Injuries derailed his campaign towards the end of summer, but he's back in the fold now. Facing a 2-0 deficit against the San Diego Padres in the bottom of the sixth inning, Hiura stepped up to the plate and hit a monster solo home run to deep right-center field to pull the the Brewers within one run.

As with anything, the wait is worth it, as Hiura records his 17th homer on the year.

His return from the IL comes at a pivotal time in the year for the Brewers, who desperately needed the additional power following the loss of Christian Yelich.
