Braun's Brawn (Very Original, I Know)

Ryan Braun homored twice in Milwaukee's losing effort against the Red Sox. He homered against the Sox on Saturday, against the Dodgers Thursday, the Cardinals (twice) on both Monday and Sunday. That gives him 8 home runs in his last 8 games, including 3 two-homer games. So much for the power-outage - he's now third in the league in HR. It's nice to see the Hammer get going. His average is up to .291, but unfortunately he only has eight walks on the year. With Gallardo and Capuano down, the Brewers are probably going to have to slug their way into contention. Once Prince Fielder gets into the act, they just might be able to do it.
