Brewers 9, Reds 2: Ryan Braun’s first-inning grand slam helps punch a second straight postseason tic

CINCINNATI – The Milwaukee Brewers wanted desperately to punch their return ticket to the postseason on Wednesday night.

Ryan Braun was more than happy to oblige.

He hit a grand slam off Tyler Mahle 20 pitches into the game, Eric Thames hit a solo home run two pitches later, and the Brewers coasted from there to a 9-2, wild-card-clinching victory over the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.

Keston Hiura also went deep against Mahle in the second inning, helping chase the right-hander from the game after only 2⅓ innings.

And, with this, the National League playoff picture is largely settled- all the teams are clear, and only the NL Central still has a race left.
