Yelich eyes history in Brewers’ series finale vs. Cards

Christian Yelich will try to match a major league record when the Milwaukee Brewers host the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday afternoon to wrap up a four-game series.

Yelich, the reigning National League Most Valuable Player, has homered in each of his first three games of the season. That represents a franchise record and is one shy of the all-time mark, shared by five players.

A home run in the series finale would give Yelich a piece of the record along with Willie Mays (San Francisco Giants, 1971), Mark McGwire (Cardinals, 1998), Nelson Cruz (Texas Rangers, 2011), Chris Davis (Baltimore Orioles, 2013) and Trevor Story (Colorado Rockies, 2016). Yelich is coming off a career-best season with 36 homers and 110 RBIs.

An interesting demonstration of the effects of the three true outcomes, albeit a subtle one.

Jeter is a keen judge of talent. Definitely don't want to deal with this guy while you convince fans you need several low-budget years to rebuild and gather some talent.

Cain's line is cute. When you watch the video in #2, Cain looks like he's about to die when he'd getting close to home.
