Top Hitting Performance
Christian Yelich returned from an extended absence due to a back injury and immediately made an impact. He hit a pair of homers in Friday’s rout of the Marlins and ultimately collected six hits across 14 at-bats in the series, hitting .429/.467/1.000 with five RBIs.
Top Pitching Performance
Wade Miley turned in a vintage performance in the series finale with the Cardinals, allowing no runs across six innings while allowing just three hits and two walks and striking out seven. Miley’s now at a 3.20 ERA with 77 strikeouts across 22 starts this season.
Injury Notes and Roster Moves
Vieira was added to the injured list on Monday with a right calf strain. He appeared in two games with the Brewers, allowing no runs and striking out two across three innings.
After being recalled to replace Vieira on Monday, Rea was sent back to Triple-A following his appearance against the Cardinals on Tuesday. For the second consecutive turn through the rotation, Trevor Megill opened for Rea, as Rea then pitched 4 2⁄3 innings, allowing just one run and ultimately earning the win.
Bukauskas was called up to replace Rea on Wednesday, appearing in three games since returning to the big league team. In five appearances with Milwaukee this season, Bukauskas has allowed no runs, striking out six across six innings.
Mejia, who was already on the 60-day injured list, tested positive for stanozolol for the second time on Wednesday, resulting in a 162-game suspension. He was immediately placed on the restricted list.
Teheran returned from the injured list on Wednesday, working out of the bullpen twice in the last week. He allowed two runs across five innings of work while striking out two batters.
