Yelich homers in return to Brewers lineup, helps team win 3-2 over Mets

Christian Yelich was back to his normal routine, hitting home runs for the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday. Yelich's third inning two-run homer helped the Brewers secure a 3-2 win over the New York Mets at Miller Park.

The Brewers and Mets were coming off an 18-inning game that took over five hours to finish on Saturday night. Both teams were probably relieved at the quick moving game on Sunday.

All of the runs for the Brewers came in the third, first on a sacrifice fly by Lorenzo Cain and then Yelich's two-run home run to right field. It was Yelich's 15th homer of the year.

The Brewers were able to get seven and two thirds innings from starter Zach Davies, who picked up his fourth win. The final outs were recorded by Matt Albers and Josh Hader. Hader earned his ninth save by striking out three batters in the ninth.

The Brewers move up to 20-16 and face the Nationals on Monday at home.
