Stat of the Night: Ryan Braun and Game-Changing Home Runs

Before the heartbreak of the late loss, there was a big home run for the Brewers. In the eighth inning, Ryan Braun came up and hit a big home run to tie the game at 3. By WPA, it was the fourth biggest home run he has ever hit. He's hit some clutch home runs in his career. Here is the list of every home run he has hit that has had a WPA of .300 or better:
