Braun becomes the 4th Brewer to have a 9 HR month


bork

Braun hit his 9th home run this month. He joins Fielder, Hardy, and Hart who have also had 9+ home run months this year.

 

Have the Brewers ever had 4 different players have a 9 HR month in the same year?

 

This decade, the only players to hit 9 or more in a month were Lee 2x, Sexson 4x, Jenkins once. But I'm not sure before then.

This reminds me of the time someone told me Braun's power was just average and that i shouldn't expect him to hit more than 20-25 homers...told me he was a 50 on the 80 power scale...

 

glad he's better than that...
