Hiura is not starting Tuesday against the Reds. Hiura hits the bench for the first time all season after going 2-for-16 with 10 strikeouts in his last five games. It's been a frustrating sophomore campaign for him overall, as he's hit just .215/.308/.436 after breaking into the league with a .303/.368/.570 line last year. Jace Peterson will get the nod at second base in his absence.
Hiura went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run during the loss to the Cardinals in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader. Hiura gave Milwaukee a 2-0 lead with his long ball off Adam Wainwright in the first. The homer was the second baseman's 13th of the season and it brought his RBI count to 32. He will try and make it three games in a row with a homer during the nightcap of the twin bill.
Hiura went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run and a walk while recording four total RBI in the Brewers' 18-3 Tuesday night victory over the Cardinals. Hiura was a lowly 2-for-17 with one RBI over his previous six games prior to Tuesday's strong showing. The Brewers offense has been feast or famine of late, scoring a combined seven runs in five games in between 19- and 18-run outbursts. Part of the volatility stems from Hiura, who is among the worst in the league in strikeout percentage.
Hiura went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored Saturday against Cleveland. Hiura took Aaron Civale deep in the sixth inning to record his 11th home run of the season. He's now homered in three consecutive contests and has four long balls in his past five starts. After a slow start to the campaign, Hiura is now hitting .238/.323/.483 with 24 runs scored and 25 RBI across 167 plate appearances.
Hiura went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Friday's win over Cleveland. The Brewers blew the game open against the Cleveland bullpen after Carlos Carrasco and Corbin Burnes were locked in a pitchers' duel, and Hiura led the charge with an RBI double in the seventh. He added a two-run homer in the eighth, his third long ball in his last four games and 10th this season. He hasn't been running a ton, especially lately, but regardless Hiura's been the top fantasy second baseman to this point.
