Bested by Christian Yelich, all Ross Stripling could do was smirk and nod, as if to say, 'Well, that makes sense'

Reigning NL MVP Christian Yelich has been on a tear for the Brewers so far in 2019, and on Friday he reclaimed the MLB lead with his 11th home run, a two-run shot off Dodgers starter Ross Stripling at Miller Park.

Yelich getting the best of pitchers is nothing new these days, as he's one of the biggest threats to opposing staffs. Fully appreciating that fact, and also demonstrating that sometimes, you just get beat, Stripling's reaction to Yelich's dinger was pretty great:

"Welp, he did it again." That's pretty much what this reaction conveys.

If you saw just Stripling's reaction, though, would you suspect he was reacting to allowing a homer? That's the real question.
