Major League Baseball:
Milwaukee 9, Pittsburgh 7
–Christian Yelich hit home runs number 38 and 39 on the season and the Brewers held on for a much needed win in game one of their series against Pittsburgh on Monday night. Yelich’s first homer of the night came in the first inning – as the Brewers built a 5-0 lead. Pittsburgh pulled within two runs twice – 5-to-3 and 8-to-6, but were never able to grab the lead. Yelich’s second home run provided some insurance – as his 425 foot shot in the eighth inning made it 9-to-6, splashing in the Allegheny River after leaving the park. Jordan Lyles picked up the win to improve to 7-7 on the year, Josh Hader picked up his 26th save of the season. Game two of the series is tonight – coverage starts at 5:30, first pitch at 6:05 on KFIZ.
