Taking advantage of the few strikes he saw, Christian Yelich hit his major league-leading 17th and 18th homers to help Zach Davies and the Milwaukee Brewers beat host Philadelphia 11-3 on Thursday.

Yasmani Grandal and Mike Moustakas also went deep.

Davies (5-0) allowed three runs — one earned — and four hits in six innings.

Yelich had three hits and scored three times, and is batting .342. The Phillies pitched around him most of the series. "You just trust in your teammates, trust in the guy behind you to do some damage," Yelich said. "The goal is to get on base, keep the line moving."

"I've never seen anybody this good for this long," teammate Ryan Braun said of Yelich. "It's really special."
