Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich distanced himself from the rest of the field with a remarkably productive second half. His .770 slugging percentage after the All-Star break was baseball’s best in 14 years as the Brewers captured the third division championship in franchise history.

Yelich was a landslide choice for the 2018 National League MVP Award, getting 29 of 30 first-place votes from the Baseball Writers’ Association of America to win over Cubs 2B Javier Baez.

Coming over in a trade from the Miami Marlins the previous winter,¬†Yelich became the first Brewers player to win a batting title and finished two home runs and one RBI shy of what would have been the NL’s first Triple Crown since St. Louis’ Joe Medwick in 1937. Yelich batted .326 with 36 home runs and 110 RBIs, leading the NL in average, slugging percentage and OPS.

With Yelich winning, it became the fifth league MVP Award in the Brewers’ 50 seasons as a franchise. Teammate Ryan Braun, won the NL honor in 2011, and Robin Yount (1982 and ’89) and Rollie Fingers (’81) won it when the Brewers were in the American League.
