By Nick Freimuth Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich hit for the cycle for the second time this season Monday in an 8-0 win over the Reds. He became the fifth player in Major League Baseball history to hit for the cycle twice in one season and only the 25th ever to do it twice in a career. He hit his 31st home run of the season plus a single and a double and needed a triple in his last at-bat for the cycle. Of course, he got it. Yelich leads the Majors since the All-Star break in batting average (.355), slugging percentage (.733) and OPS (1.149).
Game two of the three-game series with the Reds will begin at 6:40 PM tonight at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati.
