Back in April, Milwaukee Brewer’s first baseman Eric Thames was the main brilliant spot for the group at the time, as their record sat at 12-12 through 24 diversions. The Thames had impacted 11 grand slams in only 22 amusements played and thus, he got three irregular medication tests in ten days and was hit with another after another diversion.
Wednesday night, Thames broke out of a grand slam droop, which started three weeks back and spread over 15 recreations and 64 plate appearances, by hitting a two-run shot against the New York Mets.
Taking after that diversion, he got his fifth arbitrary medication trial of the season.
So, Eric Thames hits first HR in three weeks and is randomly drug tested after the game. He thinks it’s funny but doesn’t think it’s random.

In 2011, Thames hit 12 HR’s and then followed that up with 9 the next season. Someone is clearly watching him closely.
