Infielder Jonathan Villar started the final week of baseball’s regular season with pair of home runs, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 8-3 win over the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park.
With five games left, Villar needs just two homers and one stolen base to reach 20 home runs and 60 stolen bases for the season. The last player to reach the 20-60 level was Ricky Henderson for the Oakland A’s in 1990.
Villar also doubled to finish 3 for 4 on the night, helping the Brewers finish 11-7 in interleague play.
Matt Garza picked up his sixth win (6-8), pitching six innings and allowing six hits, three runs and a walk while striking out three.
The Rangers have already clinched a playoff spot, but they’re trying to secure home field advantage with Boston in the American League playoffs.
Jimmy Nelson pitches game two of the series tonight.
