Triple Crown Winners End Up In Hall of Fame

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich entered the final week of the 2018 baseball season as a much-discussed MVP candidate. He left Saturday’s game as an MVP lock and a threat to win the National League Triple Crown.

That’s an achievement—leading the league in home runs, batting average, and RBI—that hasn’t happened in the NL since 1937, when Joe Medwick of St. Louis did it.

Here’s what Christian Yelich needs to do on Sunday to earn first NL Triple Crown in 81 years

Christian Yelich, arguably the frontrunner for the National League MVP award, had a big Saturday night as part of a Milwaukee Brewers win against the Detroit Tigers.

Yelich went 2 for 3 with a pair of home runs and a walk and three runs batted in. On the season, he’s now up to 36 home runs, a .324/.400/.599 slash line, and 109 RBI.

While most of the attention this season with regards to the Triple Crown had been focused on J.D. Martinez of the Boston Red Sox, it’s Yelich who will enter the regular season’s final day within striking distance of becoming the first NL player to pull off the feat in 81 years. Joe Medwick, of the St. Louis Cardinals, was the last to do it, back in 1937. Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera was the last AL player to earn a Triple Crown back in 2012.

Something to watch for during the last day of play, both with regards to Yelich and with his competition.

Milwaukee——LET’S GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Really interesting article as Yelich discusses Lorenzo Cain as a teammate, his experience being traded and his experience as a member of the Brewers. Just thought it was worth sharing

Christian Yelich makes baseball history with second cycle of season

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich on Monday night became the first player in major league history to hit for the cycle against the same team twice in one season.

Yelich, who hit for the cycle against the Cincinnati Reds on Aug. 30, accomplished the rare feat again less than three weeks later. He’s just the fifth player ever to hit for multiple cycles in the same season.

“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.’‘
