Ryan Braun blasted his 16th home run of the season on Thursday, though he wasn’t able to lead his team to victory over the Royals.
Braun finished the night 1-for-4 with the solo shot off Luke Hochevar. The homer was just his second in the month of June. He’s off to an impressive start towards defending his MVP award, hitting .309 with 16 homers, 42 RBI and 11 steals. It’s nice to see that all of the offseason controversy and distractions haven’t hindered his play on the field.
