Yelich ties record with home run in 4th straight game

Paul Goldschmidt launched three home runs in his second Cardinals game a 9-5 win against the Brewers

Paul Goldschmidt launched three home runs in his second Cardinals game a 9-5 win against the Brewers

There were some doubts that Yelich's power numbers from previous year would carry over into 2019, as 25 of his 36 homers came in a monster second half of the season and he enjoyed a league-leading 35.0 percent home-run-to-fly-ball rate.

After going 0-for-3 with three strikeouts on Opening Day, Goldschmidt bounced back by going 4-for-5 with three home runs and five RBIs in the Cardinals 9-5 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. He also became the first player to win the MVP award and then homer in his first four games of the next season. The average exit velocity on his four home runs against the Cardinals, including one against elite lefty Andrew Miller, has been 106.1 miles per hour. If he can then carry that streak all the way through Monday's series opener against the Reds, he'll be the first and only player on that list.

However, following the display against the Magpies, Emery said: "Mesut is playing like we want, with the system and tactically". It's always like this against Newcastle .

"What we're witnessing is greatness, " teammate Ryan Braun said.

The Brewers now lead the Cardinals 4-2 in the top of the seventh.
