Aguilar hit three home runs in two days, almost single-handedly giving the Brewers back-to-back wins over the Rockies on Saturday and Sunday. He knocked in five runs in those two games while boosting his home run count to 14 on the year, which ranks fifth on the Brewers.
Aaron Rodgers (⬆ UP)
Rodgers will probably be trending up most of the year (per usual), but man it’s refreshing after a long offseason to watch what No. 12 can do. Rodgers sat out the first preseason game and came back for the first drive in Week 2 against the Redskins. He went 6-for-8 for 37 passing yards and ended the drive with a touchdown pass to new tight end Martellus Bennett. We have a feeling we’ll see a lot more of that connection in the regular season.

Badgers and the Rose Bowl (⬆ UP)
A week after announcing two future games against Notre Dame, the busy Badgers athletic department released information about a home-and-home series for 2029 and 2030 against UCLA. (Yes, those are real years.) The 2029 matchup will be on the road at the Rose Bowl in September. Future players who will play in that game are currently as young as six years old, still mastering the ABCs in first grade. When do the recruiting rankings for the class of 2029 come out?
Domingo Santana (⬇ DOWN)
Santana’s struggles in August continue. The outfielder went 3-for-18 in the past week and is hitting .169/.299/.292 in the last month, which follows Santana’s strong July in which he hit .333 with five homers and 16 RBI.

Josh Hawkins (⬆ UP)
Hawkins was a ball hawk (sorry) in the end zone in Week 2 of the preseason, batting what looked like a sure touchdown away from Redskins tight end Vernon Davis. He finished with five total tackles -- including two on special teams -- and three passes defensed.
Bucks schedule (⬆ UP)
The first two games for the Bucks next season just got more interesting. Milwaukee tips off its season on the road in Boston and at home against the Cavs -- the two teams who swapped players in Tuesday's blockbuster deal for Kyrie Irving. Cleveland sent Kyrie to the Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a first-round pick. Milwaukee will get to see how both of those teams shake out, and might have an advantage early in the year while their Eastern Conference rivals go through growing pains.
