Brad Ausmus, C – Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers had an off day yesterday.
Ryan Braun, OF, 3B – Milwaukee Brewers
Ryan once again had a big day, going 3-for-5, hitting a 3-run
homer (#13), and throwing out Rockies SS Troy Tulowitski
trying to stretch a double into a triple. His homer brought the
Brewers within one run of the Rockies, but Mat Gamel struck
out with a Prince Fielder at first. He was a busy boychik!!
Troy Tulowitski being called out at 3rd on Ryan’s throw.
His average rose to .318.
