Wong has a career-high 15 homers on the season.
“I’m definitely not a guy who hits three home runs very often,” Wong said. “I’ve had a chance to do it a couple of times, but I tried to do too much. I just tried not to do too much and keep my swing tight.”
Milwaukee finished with just four hits, but each of Wong’s first two homers occurred after leadoff walks.
“We had four hits,” manager Craig Counsell said. “Kolton had three, and all three were home runs. That was pretty incredible. He was definitely a one-man show on offense.”
Wong is the third Milwaukee second baseman to hit three homers in one game. Dale Sveum did it on July 17, 1987, against the Angels, and Aaron Hill accomplished the feat on May 7, 2016, in Cincinnati.
