Yelich keeps hitting, Moose walks it off

Christian Yelich, the odds-on favorite to win the NL MVP award, received his first taste of postseason play. He seemed to like it.

Yelich recorded two hits, including the two-run home run responsible for opening the game’s scoring:

Yelich later singled, but was forced out on an odd play. Ryan Braun hit a liner just over first baseman Ian Desmond‘s head. Desmond faked out Yelich, acting as if he caught it, and Yelich wasn’t able to recover in time to reach second safely. For those who like their postseasons tinged with red-hot emotions, Braun was shown letting off a string of expletives afterward. It just goes to show, even MVPs can get yelled at at work.

In the 10th inning, it was Yelich who led the frame off with a walk before coming around to score on a Mike Moustakas single.
