Christian Yelich is creeping his way back into conversation as a great player again. The 2018 NL MVP just completed the cycle, one of the most difficult tasks in baseball, with a ninth inning triple. Saved the tough one for last.
Christian Yelich with the triple to complete the cycle 🥵

Yelich has dealt with his fair share of struggles the past couple seasons batting .205 in 2020 and .248 last year. His 2021 campaign wasn’t awful, however those numbers weren’t adding up after back-to-back monster seasons. We’re happy to see Christian Yelich finally hitting his stride and back up to .259 this season. Injuries have played a role in Yelich’s demise, but now that he’s had some time to get his body right, perhaps we see old yeli?
Christian Yelich becomes the first player to hit for the cycle three times against the same opponent and is one of 5 to hit for the cycle three times in a career. What are the chances all three cycles came against the Reds? The Reds should go ahead and walk him next series.
