A few weeks ago, I made a post about how Ryan Braun has had some big home runs. However, he may have some competition now. Over the last week, Martin Maldonado has hit three home runs that have given the Brewers a lead. He has been a major part of the Brewers last three wins. All four of his home runs this season have been turning points for the team, each with a WPA over .100. Here are his four home runs this year:
|Career HR #||Date||Opponent||Opp. Pitcher||Runners on Base||Score Before||WPA Added||Score After|
|1||6/3/2012||Pittsburgh||Juan Cruz||Bases Empty||Behind 3-5||+.135||Behind 4-5|
|2||6/8/2012||San Diego||Edinson Volquez||First & Second||Behind 1-2||+.350||Ahead 4-2|
|3||6/10/2012||San Diego||Anthony Bass||First & Second||Behind 1-2||+.449||Ahead 4-2|
|4||6/15/2012||Minnesota||Matt Capps||Second||Tied 3-3||+.448||Ahead 5-3|
It makes you wonder what he has in store for us next.
