Jonathan Villar records a rare feat
Villar drove in five runs from the leadoff spot in the Brewers' 8-3 win over the Rangers on Monday. Only one other Brewers leadoff hitter had a five-RBI game in this century: Scooter Gennett against the Nationals in 2014, the Elias Sports Bureau notes.
Monday's longest home runs
Mark Teixeira's longest home run in his last six seasons -- a 437-foot blast -- paced the competition on Monday. Mike Trout's 29th homer wasn't far behind, while Robinson Cano's 419-footer was his first of two homers against the Astros.
Jonathan Villar had two home runs and a career-high five RBIs and Matt Garza beat his former team as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Texas Rangers 8-3 on Monday night.
Brewers owner Mark Attanasio is encouraged by GM David Stearns and manager Craig Counsell's chemistry, perhaps leading to an extension for Counsell.
