Cincinnati Reds starter Tanner Roark learned a valuable lesson in Thursday’s game with the Milwaukee Brewers. Don’t hang a slider to Christian Yelich.
With his Brewers trailing 3-0 to the Reds, Yelich stepped in against Roark. Roark’s 2-2 slider caught a little too much of the plate and 462 feet later, it was 3-1.
The 28 homers is already the second best total of Yelich’s career, trailing only the 36 that he hit a season ago.
