Brewers fall to Bucs; Braun continues surge

Ryan Braun accounted for two of Milwaukee’s five hits in a 2-0 loss to the Pirates Wednesday afternoon. Braun finished 2-for-4, raising his season batting average to .330, his on-base percentage to .400, and his slugging percentage to a National League-best .585. He also swiped his 29th bag of the year.With the Cardinals also losing, the Brewers maintained their ten game lead in the National League Central and their magic number shrunk to 22.

    All that matters is that the magic number dropped to 22 with the Cards loss, as you said. It makes the loss a bit easier to accept, but I expect Cincy to take over STL for 2nd place.

    And if Reyes gets injured again and doesn’t get to his 500-whatever PA’s, Braun will be batting champ by default, though I think he can take him regardless.
