In his at-bat on that evening, in the initial innings in Miami, Christian Yelich fouled off a pitch that went off his right kneecap and touched the ground.
He did leave the field and down the steps, his kneecap was broken and he was unable to keep the leg straight. The Milwaukee Brewers manager, Craig Counsell, said that the player is disappointed and his entire body was shaking when he went down the stairs. He went on to say that they obviously received some unpleasant news. After the Milwaukee Brewers won on Tuesday against the Marlins, the club has a 76-68 record and a 7-2 record for the month. This is still five matches after the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central. In the Wild Card, the Milwaukee Brewers are the number one team out and one match after the Chicago Cubs.
