Nolan Arenado

It’s Nolan’s 31st Birthday weekend and he came to Milwaukee to celebrate.

In the ninth inning of Friday’s game, Arenado hit his fourth home run of the season on a line drive to left-center field, scoring O’Neill. The blast traveled 382-feet at 108.1 mph. Earlier in the game, Arenado singled to left field, scoring Goldschmidt.

On Saturday, Arenado showed off defensively.

This spectacular play happened at the bottom of the third.

And this is how the game ended Saturday:

On Sunday, he was two for four, scoring once. He was also pretty outstanding manning the hot corner.

He makes things look really simple.

Here’s hoping a few days in Miami will help him kick things up another gear.
