Brewers' Christian Yelich Exits vs. Cardinals with Back Injury

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich left Sunday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals early due to back soreness.

Jackie Bradley Jr. replaced Yelich after he took his second at-bat of the game. He went 1-for-2 with a run scored before exiting. Milwaukee ended the second inning up 7-1 over the Cardinals.

The 29-year-old, who is three years removed from the MVP nod he earned in his first season with the Brewers, has slashed .222/.333/.222 with one RBI through five games for Milwaukee, which is 3-3.

Yelich struggled mightily in 2020.
