    Hunter Renfroe has not torn the world apart since coming back from the injured list on June 7th against the Phillies, only batting 0.200 in this time. But he made a splash in the three-game weekend set in Cincinnati with three bombs off three different types of pitches. The Brewers took all three games, and took back a share of first in the N.L. Central as the Cardinals dropped two of three in Boston against the Red Sox.. Now, onto the home runs.

    Hunter Renfroe: June 17th

    The first home run Renfroe hit in this series came on Friday against Hunter Green when he sent a 98.3 MPH 4-seam fastball an expected 400 ft. to left field. This made it a 3 to 0 ballgame in the top of the 4th, scoring Rowdy Tellez and Andrew McCutchen. It came off the bat at 110.1 MPH with a launch angle of 19°.
