Ryan Braun hits three home runs against Phillies (Video)
After last season’s suspension, many wondered what type of production we would see from Ryan Braun in 2014. Would it be up to the level we became accustomed to from 2008-2012?
In the third inning, Braun reached down to send a pitch over the wall in left field for a three-run shot. In the fourth, he drove a ball in the middle of the plate to right for a solo home run. The eighth inning saw the 2011 National League MVP leave the yard for the third time on the day, another of the three-run variety.
Not bad, considering Ryan Braun has been dealing with an injury to his right thumb that has caused numbness.
