MILWAUKEE – It's easy to say that the Milwaukee starry outfit, Christiane Elic, has found the place where his MVP season has stopped. But he could have been even better.
Jelic completed the first league record in the first week of the inning, firing a 1: 0 fastball from Michael Vaucha's right hand from St. Louis Cardinal through the wall in the right field for his fourth homer of the season. It turned out that he was just starting to work.
The current National League MVP became the sixth player in the history of the MLB to start a season with Hoomers in four consecutive games. The other five are Willie Mays (1971), Mark McGuire (1998), Nelson Cruz (2011), Chris Davies (201
Because of the success he has had lately, Jelic remains at a loss for words whenever they ask him how he has locked himself so long in the plate. "I do not know, honestly," Elishh shrugged. "I'm just trying to stay within one approach."
Yelicz's solo blast gave Milwaukee a 1-0 lead in the first inning, but St. Louis met for four runs and still led 4-3, entering the ninth. With a fire closer to Jordan's Hicks on the hill, pinball Ben Gamel struck double at the corner of the left field, and Lorenzo Cain reached across a single ball platform that deviated from Hicks' glove.
This led Elic to the sign. with runners on the corners and no one. The percentages say you do not put the link in a scoring position in a similar place, but given the way Yelicz goes, intentional walking is something Brewers manager Craig Sonsel says you need to consider. "It's [a question] for [the Cardinals]," said Sansel. "You must certainly talk about it."
Luis chose to go to Jelic, who jumped 2-0 in the rankings and then stroked the 102 km / h chime in the left center field, marking Gamel and Cain. When Cain stepped into the head of the home sign, Jelic jumped into the air on a second base and fired his helmet into the air.
"[Hicks has] There are many good things, the ball moves a lot," Jelic said. "He has three really good levels, you just want to make sure you get it in the area and you'll try to do something with him."
The double pair gave the Brewers victory with 5-4, with Milwaukee taking three. of four of the St Louis Division's rivals in the season's opening series.
"It was definitely a great series," Jelic said. "It was a great game for us, they are a great team, they play very well, these games are tight, you have to run them to win them."
Jelic won her first MVP award – fifth in the history of brewers – last season, with an epic second half of the season that drives Milwaukee for the NL Central title. He continued this in order to begin the campaign for 2019. Through four games, Jelic hit the .500 with four home runs and eight RBIs. He has reached his base in 12 of his 18 appearances.
"He's on Another Planet, Man," Starter of Brewers Brandon Woodruff marveled on Saturday. "He's so special, he just watches him, he's so balanced, he's not so foolish, he's on time with just about everything, it's cool to look at."
Pitchers noticed the power of Jelic. He walked three times on Sunday, once deliberately, and has already drawn six free passes for the season. Since last year's All-Star game, Yelich has hit .373 with 29 Homer and 75 RBI in 69 games, with a base percentage of .462 and a tie rate of .806.
27-year-old Jelic also prolonged two recordings he placed on Saturday. He became the first player in the history of the Brewers to make the homer in the first four games of the season, and the first MVP to do so. Jelicz hit 36 best home tournaments in 2018, but seems to be on the way to going through this figure this season.
"I'm really trying to be present during the day, no matter whether it's good or bad at night," said Jelic, "just restart and stay disciplined with the work of the cage with your team during [batting practice]. Just focus on every day as your solo [thing] I guess you could say. Do not close in the past or the future.
Barry Bonds in 2002 and Albert Poohles in 2006, hosted in the first two games of the year after winning MVP awards. Both these great players have won multiple MVP trophies, the Jelicud feat seems to be more than able to emulate.
"If you understand and know [Yelich] he is very competitive," Counsell said before the final series on Sunday. "It does not happen right away, because there is a lot of humility there, and he's not honest about things in general, but he's very competitive, I think he's taken it all as a challenge and used it for his own benefit." 19659022]
