MILWAUKEE (AP) — .Yelich hit three homers Jason Motte Jersey , including a pair of three-run shots, and drove in a career-high seven runs to power the Milwaukee Brewers past the St. Louis Cardinals 10-7 on Monday night.“He put in some work today. He probably hit longer than he was anticipating, but it paid huge dividends,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. “Give the guy credit. He went and tried to fix himself. The great ones get answers quicker than everybody else, and he had a lot of answers tonight.”Yelich, the reigning NL MVP, hit his first three-run homer to cap a six-run second inning. After St. Louis tied it with three runs in the sixth, Yelich answered in the bottom half with a towering three-run blast to right off Mike Mayers (0-1).Yelich capped off his night with his eighth homer this season, going deep to lead off the eighth. He also lined out in the first and was walked intentionally in the fourth.Seven of his eight homers this season have come against the Cardinals.“We have to find a solution and it starts with me figuring it out,” Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said. “Candidly, I’ve never seen anything like that in my life. We know he’s a good player. I’ve managed against a lot of really good players who do it every night … you have to tip your hat. It’s unbelievable. It’s almost like he’s psychic.”On the Brewers’ recent West Coast road trip, Yelich was 7 for 25 with no homers and two RBIs. His first home run snapped an 0-for-9 streak.“It wasn’t even about hitting homers, it was just about trying to swing at good pitches and hit the ball hard,” Yelich said “I really think I got away from that over the last week or so. Just kind of expanding and pressing a little bit.”Junior Guerra (1-0) worked 1 2/3 innings for the victory. Josh Hader struck out the side in the ninth after allowing Marcell Ozuna’s sixth home run to open the inning.In the sixth , the Cardinals loaded the bases with one out. Guerra entered, and his first pitch to Paul Goldschmidt sailed past catcher Yasmani Grandal for a run-scoring passed ball. Goldschmidt and Ozuna followed with RBI singles to tie it.The Brewers erased a 2-0 deficit with six runs in the second off Dakota Hudson. Mike Moustakes opened with his sixth homer. Eric Thames, Ben Gamel, pitcher Freddy Peralta and Lorenzo Cain each singled to account for two runs. Yelich then lined a 1-0 pitch over the wall in left-center.St. Louis made it 6-3 in the third on Yadier Molina’s RBI double.The Cardinals took a 2-0 lead in the first on consecutive one-out homers by Goldschmidt and Paul DeJong. Goldschmidt has hit five of his seven home runs this season at Miller Park, including a three-homer game on March 29.Cain robbed Matt Carpenter of a two-run homer with a grab above the center field wall to end the second inning.Neither starter was effective. Peralta allowed three runs on four hits with three walks in 3 1/3 innings. Hudson was tagged for six runs on eight hits with three walks in 3 2/3.TRAINER’S ROOMCardinals: OF Harrison Bader sat out a second consecutive game after tweaking his right hamstring Saturday against the Reds in Mexico. He will be re-evaluated Tuesday. … RHP Carlos Martinez threw a bullpen session for just the second time since the first week of spring training when he was sidelined with shoulder weakness. … CF Tyler O’Neill left in the third inning with right arm soreness. … 3B Drew Robinson was recalled from Triple-A Memphis, and RHP Giovanny Gallegos was optioned to Memphis. RHP Luke Gregerson, dealing with a right shoulder impingement, was sent on a rehab assignment to Class A Palm Beach.Brewers: RHP Jeremy Jeffress, who began the season on the injured list with a sore right shoulder, is scheduled to be activated Tuesday.UMPIRE HURTHome plate umpire Ron Kulpa left in the sixth inning after being struck directly in the mask with Guerra’s first pitch. Third base umpire Jerry Meals moved behind the plate.UP NEXTCardinals: RHP Jack Flaherty (1-0, 2.93 ERA) looks to build on consecutive solid starts, having allowed one run in 11 innings in his previous two outings.Brewers: RHP Brandon Woodruff (1-1, 6.00) makes his fourth start and second against the Cardinals. WASHINGTON (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers bolstered their bullpen on Friday, acquiring right-hander Ryan Madson from the Washington Nationals for a minor league pitcher.The five-time defending NL West champions have Kenley Jansen as their closer Brett Cecil Jersey , but he’s been shaky since coming off the disabled list, allowing seven earned runs in four innings over four appearances.Madson was 5-5 with five saves and a 4.08 ERA in 69 games for Washington. The 38-year-old recently came off the DL after being sidelined by nerve irritation that caused pain in his neck and back.“Feels like a fresh start, especially to a year I’ve struggled a little bit,” Madson said as he was leaving Nationals Park. “Now none of that matters. All that matters is from this point forward and helping that team win games. That’s it.”Madson, who helped Philadelphia and Kansas City win World Series titles, was acquired by the Nationals with fellow reliever Sean Doolittle from Oakland in July 2017.“Just push the ball to Kenley and that sort of reminds me of old times with (Brad) Lidge. Just push the ball to Lidge and we win,” Madson said of his time with the Phillies. “So, push the ball to Kenley and we win.”For his career, Madson is 61-48 with a 3.45 ERA and 91 saves.“What he’s done is proven, pitched in big spots,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “We’re betting on the stuff and the person.”After joining the Nationals last July, Madson went 3-0 with a 1.37 ERA and one save in 20 games as Washington captured its second straight NL East title.“It was a huge jolt to my career last year, coming into the playoff push and kind of revitalizing … actually showed myself what I can do,” Madson said. “My stuff got so much better and so I really appreciate them bringing me over here.”Los Angeles (72-62) began the day two games behind Arizona in the NL West and 2½ games back in the wild-card chase.Roberts said Madson would arrive in Los Angeles on Friday night and be activated on Saturday.“Just to have another leverage arm is good for all of us ,” Roberts said. “He’s a guy who throughout his career has actually gotten lefties out better than righties, so to have him at any point we want to play him, that’s a good thing.”Washington, which unloaded second baseman Daniel Murphy and first baseman Matt Adams on Aug. 21, received right-handed pitcher Andrew Istler from the Dodgers. Istler, 25, went 4-4 with a 2.37 ERA in 41 games (one start) between three levels of Los Angeles’ minor league system.Additionally, the Nationals recalled left-handed pitcher Sammy Solis from Triple-A Syracuse.To make room on the 40-man roster, the Dodgers designated left-handed pitcher Adam Liberatore for assignment.Washington (67-67), the two-time defending NL East champion, entered Friday 7½ games behind first-place Atlanta and 7½ back in the wild card.
