Ryan Braun hit a grand slam to tie Robin Yount for Brewers’ home run record

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun clubbed an Aaron Harang breaking ball way over the fence in left-center at Miller Park on Sunday, staking the Brewers to a 6-0 lead over the Phillies in the fifth inning. It’d help the Brewers complete a win and seal a seven-game season-sweep against the Phillies.

The grand slam was also the 251st home run of Braun’s career, tying him with Robin Yount for the most in Brewers history. Yount, however, needed 12,249 plate appearances to get there while Braun needed only 5,138.

Watch Braun make some history:

Braun, 31, has hit well for the Brewers this season, batting .272/.340/.491 with 21 home runs and 69 RBI. Earlier this summer, he made the 2015 National League All-Star team for the first time since 2012.

Brewers release statement on David Denson; Ryan Braun: “I think everybody is supportive”

Brewers minor leaguer David Denson revealed this weekend to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that he is gay, becoming the first openly gay player in MLB-affiliated ball. Soon enough this will be such a non-issue that it won’t warrant a blog post or a bunch of released statements, or even an announcement. But here’s a nice public pledge of support from the Brewers’ sitting general manager, Doug Melvin



Ryan Braun also shared some good words on Sunday morning: “I think everybody is supportive. Overall, we realize it’s a courageous decision by him, to come out and embrace his true self. I’ve never met him but I hope baseball as a whole is at a point where we judge people by their ability and not their race, religion, ethnicity or sexuality. I can’t speak for everybody on our team but he would be accepted and supported by me. And I would hope all of my teammates feel the same way.”
