The Milwaukee Brewers beat the Miami Marlins, 4-3, on Tuesday at Marlins Park.

Any other night that would be enough cause for celebration.

But not this time.

Not after franchise cornerstone and defending National League most valuable player Christian Yelich was forced from the game in the first inning with a right-knee injury that the team revealed afterward was a fractured kneecap.

As a result, Yelich's season is over.
