Ryan Braun Hits 2 Home Runs, Joins Exclusive 30/30 Club

By JOE KAY, AP Baseball Writer

CINCINNATI (AP)—Ryan Braun celebrated 30-30 and helped the Milwaukee Brewers start their final push toward a first NL Central title.

Braun homered twice and became only the second player in Brewers history to get 30 homers and steals in a season Friday night, setting up a 6-3 victory that eliminated the Cincinnati Reds from playoff contention.

Braun hit one of Milwaukee’s four homers off Bronson Arroyo (8-12), then added his 30th off reliever Jeremy Horst. Braun, who also has 31 steals, joined Tommy Harper as the franchise’s only 30-30 players.

“I’m really proud,” Braun said. “There’s a reason it’s only been done one other time in franchise history. It’s a hard thing to do.”

So is finally nailing down that title.
