Two-Minute Drive: Yelich Hits Cycle, De Bruyne Scores Four

Jonathan Grant | May 12th, 2022

1st Down: Christian Yelich recorded his third career cycle on Wednesday night as the Milwaukee Brewers fell 14-11 to the Cincinnati Reds. In doing so, Yelich joined a very small club of six that have reached that milestone, and you have to think that he will have a decent chance to take the lead as he is still a young player. Yelich, who has hit all three against the Reds, doubled in the first, homered in the third, singled in the fifth, and got the hardest hit via a ninth-inning triple as they attempted a failed rally.

2nd Down: Manchester City got four goals from Belgian star Kevin De Bruyne as they romped the Wolves on the road 1-5 on Wednesday to regain the Premier League title lead. The superstar netted three times in the first 24 minutes and grabbed his fourth in the 60th minute to further underline his supreme outing. The city is three points ahead of Liverpool with only two games remaining.
