Ryan Braun hits two home runs amid ‘steroids’ chants from Pirates fans

Ryan Braun

Ryan Braun had a big game for the Milwaukee Brewers in an 8-4 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday, and he did it all despite taunts from the opposing fans.

When Braun came up to the plate at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, he was met with chants of “steroids” from the fans.

Braun, of course, was once flagged for a positive urine test and had it overturned, and then he was later suspended for his ties to Biogenesis — a PED supplier. The taunts didn’t appear to bother him, as he bashed a pair of two-out, two-run home runs.

Here was his first dinger:

The homers give Braun three on the season.

Though the steroids scandal is a few years old, it’s understandable why an opposing crowd would not soon forgive Braun about it. It’s also better to see that happen rather than watch Brewers fans give Braun a standing ovation like he’s some triumphant hero.
