Ryan Braun on Saturday hit a pair of home runs (one in the 7th inning and another in the 9th) to give the Brewers an 8-7 come-from-behind win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. For Braun, it was his second game of the young 2014 season with two or more HRs (he hit three in a game earlier this season against the Phillies). Last season, in a year Braun would likely want to forget, he did not have a multi-HR game.
The multi-HR game on April 19th was the 20th of Braun’s career. He is now only two away from the Brewers club record held by Prince Fielder who had 22 multi-HR games in his career with the Brew Crew. Here’s a look at the Brewers players with 10 or more multi-HR games in their careers in Milwaukee.
