Matt Clark homered in his third straight game Sunday, hitting a three-run shot in a win over the Reds.

Clark hit homers in back-to-back wins over the Marlins earlier in the week, and getting the start Sunday he hit a three-run shot off Logan Ondrusek in the seventh inning. It was his only hit in five at-bats. The first baseman is hitting .235/.222/.765 through his first nine major league games.

27-year-old Matt Clark hit his first big-league homer Wednesday in the Brewers' win over the Marlins.

Clark, a 2008 12th-round pick of the Padres, was making his second major league start at first base after being called up on Sept. 2. The Brewers don't have a lot to lose by trying some younger players right now, so Clark could get another start Thursday against right-hander Nathan Eovaldi. NL-only leaguers may want to pick him up.

Brewers signed INF Matt Clark to a minor league contract.

The 27-year-old slugger was pounding the ball at Double-A Binghamton, slashing .297/.380/.498 with 10 homers and 46 RBI in 67 contests, but the Mets were unable to find room for him on the 40-man roster. With the Brewers struggling to get consistent offensive production from the first base position, he could become an option for them at some point this season.
