Ryan Braun hit a two-run homer to break a tie in the eighth inning, leading the Brewers to a 5-3 win over the Twins on Sunday.

With a runner on and no outs in the eighth, Braun slammed a Casey Fien pitch out to left to give the Brewers the lead. He finished 1-for-2 with two walks and a stolen base, his ninth steal of the season. The 31-year-old's .259/.331/.486 line is a bit below his usual output, but Braun's 15 homers and 49 RBI are both eighth-most in the National League.

Ryan Braun (thumb) remained out of the Brewers' lineup Friday.

Braun was holding out hope that he'd be ready to go Friday after another cryotherapy shot in his right thumb, but the realistic goal is a return on Sunday. The outfielder is batting .258/.332/.489 with 12 homers, 38 RBI and six steals this season. Gerardo Parra is in right field again Friday, with Shane Peterson covering left.
Jun 5 - 4:50 PM

Ryan Braun has flown to Los Angeles in order to receive another cryotherapy shot in his right thumb.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said it's a pre-planned thing rather than Braun having a setback. Obviously, it's something to keep a close eye on, though, with Braun having hit just .194/.242/.226 over his last seven games. It's possible he'll be ready to play by Friday, but Counsell isn't counting on Braun until Sunday.
