Brewers star Christian Yelich is back in Milwaukee’s starting lineup today as the club aims for a three-game sweep of the Mets at Miller Park. First pitch is scheduled for 2:10 p.m. ET.
Yelich is batting second and manning his customary right-field spot in his first start in a week. He made one pinch-hit appearance in Saturday night’s 18-inning marathon win for the Crew, lining out to lead off the bottom of the 10th. The reigning National League MVP has missed time with lower back soreness that surfaced in last Sunday’s loss to the Mets at Citi Field, which forced him to exit the game in the fifth inning.
