Brewers riding hot Braun against Tigers

MILWAUKEE — It’s been a full decade since the Milwaukee Brewers snapped a 26-year playoff drought, thanks in large part to a monster final week by Ryan Braun.

Braun, who came up big again three years later when the Brewers won their first NL Central crown, has been through a lot since. But now, with the team headed back to the playoffs for the first time since 2011, it’s no coincidence that Braun is again playing at an elite level.

He has five home runs over his last four games, including a two-homer night on Friday in the series opener against the Detroit Tigers, after hitting just one over his previous 28 contests.

My understanding is that “riding hot Braun” is either a sandwich they eat in Louisville, or something that will get you in deep trouble with the police….
