Ryan Braun was pulled in the second inning of Saturday's game against the Reds due to lower back spasms.

Jul 5 - 4:48 PM

Ryan Braun singled and had a two-RBI triple in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

He was fortunate to get his two-RBI triple in the third inning, as Colby Rasmus took a bad route and made an ill-timed jump before the ball went off his glove. Nevertheless, it was another nice day for Braun, who is now hitting .333 with a homer and 14 RBI over his last 14 games.
Jul 2 - 4:05 PM

Ryan Braun went 1-for-4 with two RBI in Friday's 3-2 win against the Rockies, including a walk-off single.

In a low-scoring affair, Braun's two RBI were crucial. He was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the seventh to give Milwaukee a 2-1 lead. After Francisco Rodriguez blew the save, Braun knocked in Mark Reynolds with an RBI single off Matt Beslisle in the bottom of the ninth to secure the 3-2 win. He has 43 RBI on the year and is slashing .283/.337/.484.

Ryan Braun had a productive night, going 2-for-3 with two walks, a stolen base, and two runs scored in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

Braun walked and scored in the first inning, then singled and scored in the fifth. His eighth-inning stolen base was his eight of the season in 11 attempts, and he is now slashing .284/.336/.488 with 10 home runs and 41 RBI.
Jun 27 - 12:11 AM

Ryan Braun went 2-for-6 with two RBI in the Brewers' loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

Braun gave the Brewers a lead with a two-run single in the fifth inning, with the Nationals eventually winning it in extras. The two-hit game raised his average to .279 with an .813 OPS, but he was hitting just .209/.270/.352 in June heading into Tuesday's game. He has just one home run since June 1.
Jun 25 - 1:45 AM

Ryan Braun (ankle) is in Monday's lineup against the Nationals.

Braun left Sunday's game with an injury to his right ankle, but evidently it's not a major concern. He'll bat second Monday against Washington left-hander Gio Gonzalez.
Jun 23 - 4:53 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said that Ryan Braun suffered a minor ankle injury on Sunday and could be forced to miss Monday's game.

The ankle injury is the reason that Braun was pulled early from Sunday's contest against the Rockies. It doesn't look as though it's serious enough to necessitate a trip to the disabled list, so expect him to return to the lineup at some point early in the week.
Jun 22 - 8:28 PM

Ryan Braun went 3-for-6 with two-RBI in Friday's 13-10 victory over Colorado.

He hit an RBI double in the seventh and tacked on an RBI single in the 9th. He also stole his seventh base of the season, which is a good sign given some of the health issues that have nagged him in the first part of the season. While his power numbers are down from his pre-suspension days, he remains a dangerous bat in the Brewer lineup. He's slugging over .500 on the year.
Jun 21 - 1:56 AM
