Christian Yelich has hit for the cycle for the second time this season, setting a major league record by doing it twice against one team.

Christian Yelich made history on Monday night when he hit for the cycle against the Cincinnati Reds for the second time this season. Yelich also hit for the cycle when he went 6 for 6 on August 29 in Cincinnati, making him the fifth player to accomplish the feat twice in one season - and first in Brewers history.

Before sprinting to third in the sixth, Yelich crushed a home run in the fifth inning, giving the Brewers a 2-0 lead.

Long John Reilly (1883), Tip O'Neill (1887), Babe Herman (1931) and Aaron Hill (2012) are the only other players to have two cycles in the same season. With the Brewers nursing a large lead, he was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the eighth. (Side note: the Marlins have never had a player hit for the cycle.) Yelich is hitting.313 with 30 homers and 89 RBI, leading the Brewers to a three-game lead atop the NL wild card standings.
