Christian Yelich hit two home runs in a win on Monday, Aug. 5, 2019 over the Pirates, but he missed the final two games of the series due to nagging back pain.

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich won a second consecutive Silver Slugger Award, presented to the season’s best offensive producers at each position as voted by major league managers and coaches.

Yelich won his second straight National League batting title with a .329 average and led the league with a 1.100 OPS. He was also among the league leaders with 44 home runs, 97 RBIs and 100 runs scored despite sustaining a season-ending fractured kneecap on Sept. 11.

Yelich also won the award in 2016 as a member of the Miami Marlins.
