Stat Of The Day: Braun For Batting Title?

Ryan Braun had another big day today, going 3-for-3 with a walk and a homer (and also getting caught stealing) in the Brewers 4-0 win. Those three hits raised Braun's average to .335 (161-for-481), which moved him past Jose Reyes and into first place in the race for the NL batting title. .335 is also easily the highest average any qualified Brewer has had during the Miller Park era:

Player Season AVG
Ryan Braun 2011 .335
Ryan Braun 2009 .320
Scott Podsednik 2003 .314
Brady Clark 2005 .306
Ryan Braun 2010 .304

Braun is currently third on the team's all time list: the Brewer franchise record is .353, set by Paul Molitor in 1987. Cecil Cooper also hit .352 in 1980. The Brewers have 21 games left to play: If Braun appears in all of them and averages 3.7 ABs per game (his current pace), he'd need 37 more hits to bat .354 and break the record.
