With his home run in the sixth inning today, Ryan Braun continued to climb in the Brewers record books. That home run was the 393rd extra base hit of his career, giving him sole possession of sixth place all time. Here is the list of the top ten players with the most extra-base hits in franchise history:
At his current pace, Ryan Braun should pass Prince Fielder for fifth place at some point in 2012.
In addition, Corey Hart recorded his 21st extra-base hit of the season with a double in the third inning. He is currently on pace for 87 extra base hits in 2012. If he were to hit that mark, it would tie a franchise record for extra-base hits in a season, currently held by Prince Fielder and Robin Yount.
Finally, with his double today, Jonathan Lucroy recorded his 54th career extra base hit. He is currently 11th in extra-base hits among catchers. Here is the list of the top 11:
At his current pace this season, he would finish the season with 50 extra base hits in 2012, which would move him into 7th place on this list.
