>>Brewers Beat Reds Behind Yelich Cycle

He went 4-for-4 with four R-B-Is to lead the Brewers to an 8-0 shutout over the Reds at Miller Park.  Yelich became the first player in 100 years to hit for the cycle twice against the same team in the same season. Southpaw Wade Miley pitched five shutout innings for the win.  The Brewers hold the top N-L wild card spot and are two-and-a-half games behind the Cubs for the N-L Central lead.
