Christian Yelich hits a trio of homers

Christian Yelich​ collected his first career 3-homer game against the St. Louis Cardinals​.[5]​ This was the first three-homer game for a Brewers​ player since Aaron Hill accomplished the feat against the Cincinnati Reds​ at the Great American Ball Park​ on May 7, 2016.[6][+]

The first two home runs were three-run homers; the second one broke a 6-6 tie in the bottom of the 6th inning.​ His third home run was a solo homer and gave him a total of 7 RBI in the same game; the last Brewer to collect 7 RBI in a game was Jesús Aguilar​, who did it against the New York Yankees​ on July 7, 2017.[6][+][+]

Yelich has homered in each of his five games against the Cardinals this season. The only other player to homer in each of his first five games of a season vs. St. Louis is former career home run leader Hank Aaron​ in 1972.[4]​ Jeff Bagwell​ (2000), Andrés Galarraga​ (1996), Matt Williams (1993), and Tommy Holmes​ (1945) each homered in 5 straight games against St. Louis, as well, but not in the first 5 games their team faced them.[7]
