Ryan Braun had an RBI single, a run scored and a stolen base Tuesday against the Pirates.
Braun's RBI single came in the first inning against Bucs ace Gerrit Cole. He scored later in the inning before walking and stealing a base in the fifth. The steal was Braun's 19th of the season, leaving him one short of the fourth 20-steal season of his career. When he gets there, Braun will join Paul Goldschmidt as the only 20-20 players thus far this year, assuming Justin Upton doesn't get there first. Braun is hitting .278/.349/.503 with 24 homers, 78 RBI and 76 runs scored in a convincing return to form this year. Sep 1 - 11:27 PM

For the year, the former MVP is hitting .277/.346/.495 with 20 homers and 65 RBI.
