Yelich stayed hot Wednesday in the Brewers' loss to the Nationals, stretching his hit streak to nine games. He's been so good that Washington star Bryce Harper tried to take some of Yelich's mojo for himself. It … worked? Harper homered in the following at-bat, hitting a three-run homer in the fifth inning and powering the Nationals to a 7-3 win.

Freddy Peralta, Brewers pitcher (↓ DOWN)
The rookie starter struggled with command in his most recent start, allowing four hits and seven runs in six innings Wednesday against the Nationals. Peralta hadn't allowed more than four runs in his seven previous starts.
Junior Guerra, Brewers pitcher (↑ UP)
Guerra didn't have his best stuff in his return from the 10-day disabled list, allowing four runs on four hits in six innings Tuesday. However, he made up for it at the plate, smacking his first hits of the season, a pair of doubles, to help the Brewers to a 5-4 win over the Nationals.
Jesus Aguilar, Brewers first baseman (↓ DOWN)
Maybe it's a post-derby curse. Maybe hitting a baseball is just a really tough thing to do consistently. Either way, Aguilar has in a rut since the All-Star break. He has just one hit, a home run, in 15 at-bats since the break.
The Bradley Center (↓ DOWN)
It's been a good run, Bradley Center. The 30-year-old facility hosted its last event Tuesday, a Zac Brown Band concert for a Northwestern Mutual convention. The building's deconstruction kicked off the following day. The Milwaukee Bucks will move into the newly-constructed Wisconsin Entertainment and Sports Center next season.
