Milwaukee beat Cincinnati 9-3 on Sunday, improving to 3-4 at August. It was the Brewers' first victory in five home games this season. Their longest losing streak at Miller Park is eight, set in April/May 2010. … They have played only 13 games; a three-game series with St. Louis was postponed until September when the Cardinals suffered an outbreak of COVID-19. … 2018 NL MVP Christian Yelich opened the season 1-for-27 and is still only hitting .148, but he has heated up a little, hitting home runs in three of the past four games, including a 410-foot homer Sunday, when he also hit a triple. He went 1-for-16 in four games vs. the Twins last year. … Both CF Lorenzo Cain and RHP Shelby Miller opted out of playing this season after it began. … DH Ryan Braun (finger infection) is on the injured list.
