Ryan Braun #8
Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun practically supplied all the offense for the Brewers in an afternoon game versus the Cincinnati Reds at Milwaukee’s Miller Park. In three consecutive at-bats, Braun had a two-run double in the first inning, a three-run homer in the second, and a solo home run in the fourth. With Braun’s 6-RBI day, he became the third Brewer in history to record two games with at least six RBIs in a season. The Brewers won the game 7-3, and limited the offense of the Reds behind the strong 4-hit, 1-run pitching performance of Brewers starting right-hander Wily Peralta.
QUOTE: “Over the last couple weeks, I’ve swung the bat pretty well, and the pitches that I have gotten to hit, I haven’t missed many of them,” Braun said.
FACT: Braun is batting .381 with nine homers and 21 RBIs since the All-Star break.
