Dodgers catcher Yasmani Grandal had a career-high eight runs on two home runs and reaching base six times in leading LA over the hapless Milwaukee Brewers 14-4 at Miller Park on Thursday.

The Cuban-born Grandal, a switch-hitter, knocked in two runs in the sixth inning. He belted a three-run homer in the eighth and another three-run blast in the ninth inning.

On December 18, 2014, he was traded to the Dodgers in the Matt Kemp trade with the San Diego Padres.

Milwaukee Brewers give Uecker a statue outside Miller Park

Milwaukee Brewers broadcaster Bob Uecker was never a great baseball player by any stretch of the imagination. But he is very popular with Brewers fans and baseball fans in general.

For that reason, the Brewers management unveiled a statue on Friday outside of Miller Park of the 77 year old icon.

The 7-foot bronze statue feature Uecker smiling with his hands in his pockets.

Uecker, who grew up in Milwaukee, affectionately dubbed “Mr. Baseball” by Tonight Show host Johnny Carson in the 1970′s, joins Hall of Famers Hank Aaron, Robin Yount and Former Brewers owner and current MLB Commissioner Bud Selig as the fourth person to have a statue outside the main gates of Miller Park.

The 90-minute ceremony included members of  Uecker’s 80′s hit television show “Mr. Belvedere”, which ran for 117 episodes from 1980 to 1985. Other attending was former Milwaukee Braves teammate Joe Torre and former Brewers star reliever Rollie Fingers.

A righty all the way, Uecker’s claim to fame is that he hit a home run off of Hall of Fame lefty Sandy Koufax. His career totals include a .200 batting average with 14 homers, 74 RBI’s while playing for the Milwaukee Braves, St. Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia and Atlanta. He won a World Series championship in 1964 with the Cardinals and was awarded the Ford C. Frick Award in 2003 which puts him in the broadcast wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame.
