Play of the Day: Ryan Braun lays out to rob Wilmer Flores of extra bases

16 Comments

Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun laid out and robbed Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores of what likely would have been a triple — a double, at least — on a fly ball to right-center field with two outs in the second inning. Braun then came to the plate with a man aboard and no outs in the top of the third and blasted a Bartolo Colon offering into the second deck at Citi Field. Not a bad start to the night.

Braun wasn’t done, though. He homered again in the eighth inning off of reliever Carlos Torres, pushing the Brewers’ lead to 7-0.

Following the two-homer night, Braun is hitting .256/.328/.471 with eight home runs and 21 RBI on the year.
