Ryan Braun slugged a pair of home runs Wednesday in the Brewers' 7-1 rout of the Rockies.
That concludes a three-game sweep for the Brewers. Braun hit a solo shot off Rockies starter Tyler Anderson in the bottom of the fourth inning and then added a two-run bomb off Chad Qualls in the bottom of the seventh. He finished the day 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored and is now slashing .317/.380/.562 with 24 home runs, 74 RBI, 13 stolen bases, and 66 runs scored in 105 games this season. Pretty good stuff from the 32-year-old outfielder. Aug 24 - 5:24 PM

Ryan Braun (knee, ankle) is back in the Brewers' starting lineup on Thursday against the Cubs.

Braun sprained his left knee and ankle when he slid into the wall down the left field line at Wrigley Field on Tuesday while trying to track down a foul ball. He was lucky to escape without a major injury. The veteran outfielder will bat third for the Brewers on Thursday afternoon against Cubs right-hander Jake Arrieta.

Ryan Braun will not be undergoing an MRI or X-ray on his left knee sprain.

Braun is already working on a stationary bike after he injured his left knee while running into the wall in foul territory at Wrigley Field earlier this week. That the Brewers coaching staff doesn't feel the need to put the veteran slugger through an MRI is a sign this injury probably won't sideline Bruan for very long.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell described Ryan Braun's left knee injury as a "strain."

He also has a sprained ankle. Braun suffered the injuries Tuesday when he slid into the semi-padded wall down the left field line at Wrigley Field while trying to track down a foul ball. He was able to walk off under his own power after a few minutes but had a noticeable limp. This could easily be a disabled list situation for the 32-year-old outfielder, who has posted an impressive .325/.388/.566 batting line with 22 home runs, 65 RBI, 13 stolen bases, and 61 runs scored in 98 games this season. Ramon Flores took over in left field on Tuesday night.

He tried walking it off but eventually left the field with a trainer, sporting a noticeable limp. Look for an update shortly. Ramon Flores entered the game in Braun's place.

It's the eighth time in his career that Braun has reached the 20-homer plateau. The 32-year-old is enjoying a strong year all around, batting .323/.387/.550 with 59 RBI, 58 runs scored and 13 steals to date.

Ryan Braun is getting the day off Thursday.

Braun is one of the hottest hitters in baseball at the moment and went 2-for-4 with an RBI on Wednesday, but the 32-year-old will grab some rest during Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Braves. Kirk Nieuwenhuis is starting in left field and batting fifth versus Atlanta right-hander Roberto Hernandez.
Aug 11 - 10:57 AM

Ryan Braun hit his 19th home run of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Braves.

Braun attacked one of the few mistakes made by Braves starter Tyrell Jenkins, belting a solo homer out to left-center in the fourth inning. The 32-year-old is feeling it lately, with Tuesday's shot giving him five homers in his past seven games. Braun has 19 homers overall to go with a .323/.389/.546 line, 57 RBI, 56 runs and 13 steals.
Aug 9 - 11:23 PM

Ryan Braun hit two home runs, scored three runs, drove in seven RBI and stole a base as the Brewers thrashed the Diamondbacks 15-6 on Saturday.

That is how to fill up a box score. He finished the game 3-for-4 with a walk. He hit a three-run bomb in the sixth inning, then added another three-run jack in the seventh. The other RBI came in on a sacrifice fly. The seven RBI tied a Brewers' team record. The epic game lifted his line to .324/.389/.546 with 18 home runs, 55 runs, 56 RBI and 13 stolen bases.
Aug 7 - 12:45 AM

Ryan Braun (side) went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Padres.

Braun whacked a two-run home run off Padres starter Edwin Jackson in the eighth inning. That only served cosmetic effect in the ultimate 12-3 defeat. Braun was dealing with tightness in his right side at the end of July, but has homered in back-to-back games and appears to be past that injury. He has launched 17 homers and driven in 50 runs across 332 at-bats.
Aug 3 - 7:35 PM

Ryan Braun (side) went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

Braun had been sidelined with right side tightness for a week, but finally managed to claw his way back into the lineup on Tuesday. That went well enough, as he launched a solo home run off Luis Perdomo to lead off the sixth inning. The veteran slugger is slashing .320/.383/.521 with 16 homers and 48 RBI over 328 at-bats. Whether he is past his side injury for good should become clear in the coming days.
Aug 3 - 2:08 AM

Ryan Braun (side) is out again Monday against the Padres.

Braun hasn't played in a week due to right side tightness. He's seen some improvement and remains optimistic about returning soon. Kirk Nieuwenhuis will make the start in right field while Keon Broxton plays center and Ramon Flores plays left.
