Ryan Braun had a day that fantasy owners dream of on Tuesday afternoon in Philadelphia as the Brewers ruined the Phillies home opener with a 10-4 victory at Citizens Bank Park. All Braun did was blast three home runs and knocked in seven RBI to back the Brewers in their victory. Braun's first home run came in the third inning and it was a three-run home run off of Kyle Kendrick. In the fourth inning, Braun hit a solo home run off of Kendrick. The third blast came in the eighth inning and it was a three-run home run off of Brad Lincoln. The blasts were the first three of his season, and the seven RBI in one game matched a club record set by Jonathan Lucroy. It appears that Braun's thumb is feeling just fine and for those fantasy owners that grabbed Braun in the first round of their draft are feeling much better about things after his slow start.
