Ryan Braun: Another multi-HR game

Ryan Braun had a pair of home runs in the Brewers' 10-7 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates last night.

It was Braun’s 16th career multi-HR game and the fourth this season. The Brewers are 4-0 this season in games during which Braun hits two or more home runs, and they have won the last seven games in which Braun has had multiple home runs. It is also the third multiple-home-run game for Braun in his last 21 games.

For those of you wondering if Braun’s 16 multi-HR games is a team record, the answer is no. Braun’s 16 ranks him third in team history behind Prince Fielder with 22 and Gorman Thomas with 19 multi-HR games.

Following is a look at Brewers players who have hit two or more home runs in five or more games with the Brewers.

22: Prince Fielder

19: Gorman Thomas

16: Ryan Braun

14: Robin Yount, Cecil Cooper, Greg Vaughn, Jeromy Burnitz

Here’s a look at the players who hit two or more home runs in five or more games in a season for the Brewers.
