Christian Yelich ties HR record by hitting four home runs in the first four games of the season.

Christian Yelich won the national league MVP award in 2018 and he’s picking up right where he left off.

Yelich tied a major league record Sunday after drilling a Michael Wacha fastball over the right field wall to make it his fourth homer on the season. No, that is not a typo. Christian Yelich has hit four home runs in the first four games of the season.

The Brewers slugger now becomes the sixth player in history to do this, joining Willie Mays, Mark McGwire, Nelson Cruz, Chris Davis, and Trevor Story.

Yelich really seemed lost when asked how he’s managed to stay so locked in at the plate this year.

“I don’t know, honestly,” Yelich said. “I’m just trying to stay within an approach.”

It’s obvious that whatever approach he opted for thus far has worked for him this season. Through four games, Yelich has a batting average of .500 with 8 RBIs. He’s also managed to get on base in 12 of his 18 at-bats.

Since the 2018 all-star break, Christian is hitting .373 with 29 homers and 75 RBIs in 69 games, with a .462 on-base percentage and .806 slugging percentage. It’s safe to say that he has simply been on another planet.

Yelich is looking like he can be the number one factor to land the Brew-Crew atop of the very competitive NL Central division by the end of the season.
