Christian Yelich gets his 2nd cycle of the season in Brewers win

Christian Yelich recorded his second cycle in less than a month, becoming the fifth player in history to accomplish the feat in one season, and the Brewers beat the Reds 8-0 on Monday night.

Yelich, who finished 4-for-4, raised his batting average to .318, putting him in a tie with the Reds' Scooter Gennett for the NL lead.

Wade Miley tossed five scoreless innings, Josh Hader struck out the side in his inning of work, and Brandon Woodruff pitched a three-inning save for the Brewers in the victory.

The other teams in the standings that the Brewers are either chasing (Chicago Cubs) or holding off (Los Angeles Dodgers, St. Louis Cardinals, Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies) were all still playing as of the time the Brewers game ended.
