Villar went 1-for-2 with two walks in Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Cardinals. On an afternoon where Adam Wainwright mostly stymied the Brewers, Villar continued his season-long trend of finding a way to get on base. He's now reached safely in nine straight, and has his season line up to .301/.386/.429.
Villar went 3-for-4 with two runs in Wednesday's 7-0 victory over the Dodgers. The 25-year-old got his average back to .300 with his second three-hit outing over the last four games. Villar has been outstanding in the leadoff role in his first season in a Brewers uniform, and has an above-average .814 OPS over 280 at-bats.
Villar is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the A's. After playing in 51 straight games, Villar will get his first day off since April 28 on Wednesday. He has gone 0-for-4 in each of his last two games, so the off day should allow him to collect himself before the Brewers open their weekend series with the Nationals on Friday. Yadiel Rivera will take over at shortstop Wednesday in place of Villar.
Villar went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and two runs Thursday against the Brewers. Villar's sixth homer of the year broke up a tie game to win the game for the Brewers in the top of the ninth inning. He's now hit safely in each of his last five games to raise his slash line to .302/.390/.442.
Villar went 5-for-12 (.416) with a double, an RBI, three runs scored, and a stolen base over his last three games. Villar hit a rough patch earlier this month, going just 3-for-24 (.125) between June 5 and June 11, but he has started to pick up the pace again. He continues to bat leadoff for the Brewers and owns a healthy .299/.388/.432 slash line on the season. He has also tallied 23 steals -- the most in the majors.
