The Milwaukee Brewers have found themselves at the top of the National League Central division thanks in large part to their core of young stars.
Infielder Brice Turang has been a revelation thus far.
Turang already has two home runs to start the season, one of which was a grand slam against the New York Mets.
On Monday, the 23-year-old was back it at again as the Brewers opened up a series with the Seattle Mariners.
It was a solo shot in the top of the seventh that helped the Brewers extend their lead over the Mariners to 5-2.
On Twitter, the Brewers posted a video of the moment.

Turang has been a pleasant surprise for the Brewers.
Along with Joey Wiemer and Garrett Mitchell, he has helped carry the load for the Brewers and head up the youth movement in Milwaukee.
The 23-year-old infielder is hitting .283 in 46 at-bats and has picked up a total of 13 hits.
He also has driven in 13 runs.
The Brewers are ahead of the Chicago Cubs by two games in the NL Central with a 12-5 record and own the second-best record in the National League.
But the team’s core of young stars have been the driving force thus far.
The Brewers ultimately won their game on Monday over the Mariners by a final of 7-3 and will look for more heroics from Turang and their young stars as they attempt to pull off a series victory.
Milwaukee has already put some distance between themselves and the defending central champions, the St. Louis Cardinals, as they lead the Birds by five games.NEXT: Devin Williams Dominated The Padres In Relief
