Brewers' all-star Christian Yelich met with a kid who caught his home run ball after a win against the Cincinnati Reds Monday.

Yelich traded the boy an autographed bat in exchange for the ball.

The Brewers tweeted out a video of the two meeting.

It was a career night for Yelich as he hit for a cycle for the second time this season.

He started with a single in the bottom of the first and followed that up with a double in the third. In the fifth inning, he bumped the team up five to nothing with a two-run shot. He finished off the cycle in the sixth inning with a triple to right center that scored Johnathan Scope and Curtis Granderson.
