Braun in midst of another 10-HR month

Ryan Braun hit two home runs, giving him 10 for August, in the Brewers' win on Wednesday. It's the third time that Braun his hit at least 10 homers in a month (also July 2007 and May 2008). That ties Gorman Thomas for the second-most months with double-digit homers in team history, behind Prince Fielder's five, per the Elias Sports Bureau.
