Lucroy cleans up

Jonathan Lucroy launched 2 home runs on his way to collecting a franchise-tying 7 RBI in Milwaukee’s 16-4 rout of Minnesota Sunday afternoon at Miller Park.

In his first career start as a clean-up hitter, Jonathan Lucroy delivered big time. On the same gorgeous afternoon that I also graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (had to sneak that in there!), the Brewers spanked the Twins to a tune of 16-4. The offense was simply explosive, receiving three hits a piece from Corey Hart, Ryan Braun, and the aforementioned stud catcher. Hart hit his ninth homer of the season while Lucroy smacked two, including his first ever grand slam. Lucroy finished the game 3-for-5 with 2 home runs, 3 runs scored, and a career-high 7 RBI — tying the Milwaukee Brewers franchise record for runs driven in during a single contest. Maybe, just maybe, this is what Milwaukee needed to get back on track…

Lucroy is now hitting .342 this season and owns an other-worldly .552 batting average with runners in scoring position (16-for-29). Yeah, that’s not a typo — .552!

Lucroy basking in a much deserved curtain call.

Sadly, I don’t think we’re back on track. Lol. Wish every game could be like that one.
