Play of the Day: Ryan Braun lays out to rob Wilmer Flores of extra bases
Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun laid out and robbed Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores of what likely would have been a triple -- a double, at least -- on a fly ball to right-center field with two outs in the second inning. Braun then came to the plate with a man aboard and no outs in the top of the third and blasted a Bartolo Colon offering into the second deck at Citi Field. Not a bad start to the night.

Braun wasn’t done, though. He homered again in the eighth inning off of reliever Carlos Torres, pushing the Brewers’ lead to 7-0.
Following the two-homer night, Braun is hitting .256/.328/.471 with eight home runs and 21 RBI on the year.
