Braun Within Striking Distance Of 30/30

Batting 3rd in the 1st game of a doubleheader against the Pirates, Ryan Braun was 1-5 with 1 HR (his 25th), 2 RBIs, and 1 run scored. In the 2nd game of the doubleheader, Braun was 0-4. Nice play right here. This is Braun's 5th consecutive season where he has hit 25 or more HRs. He now has 25 HRs and 26 SBs.

Batting 7th, Danny Valencia was 1-4 with 1 double (his 26th) against the Orioles. Make that 6 extra base hits in his last 7 games.

Batting leadoff, Ian Kinsler was 1-4 against the Red Sox. Kinsler knows how to end a game with style. Great play.

Batting 6th, Ryan Lavarnway was 0-2 with 2 BBs against the Rangers.

Batting 7th, Sam Fuld was 0-3 with 1 BB against the Tigers.
