Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich had a return date in mind as he was recovering from some back stiffness. That date was either Friday or Saturday against the Miami Marlins. On Friday he was inserted into the starting lineup for just the second time in 13 games and he ended up having a multi home run game.
Christian Yelich hits two home runs for the Milwaukee Brewers in his first game back against the Miami Marlins.
Against the Marlins the Brewers offense exploded. In the second inning they poured in 12 runs. The final runs of that inning came courtesy of a Christian Yelich two run home run to the opposite field.

Overall Christian Yelich finished the night three for four with two home runs, one double, one walk, and five runs batted in. There did not appear to be any visible lingering affects in regards to back stiffness. This is quite the drastic difference from a week ago when he played against the Washington Nationals and went zero for three with two strikeouts.
Hopefully Christian Yelich is able to stay healthy throughout the remainder of the regular season as well as for the duration of the playoffs.
The Brewers win tonight against the Marlins secured them a spot in the playoffs and their magic number to clinch the National League Central is down to one.
