Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun enters tonight’s regular season finale
against the Pittsburgh Pirates just percentage points behind Jose Reyes for the National League batting title.
Braun went 1 for 2 last night and is hitting .333932. Reyes, who had a 3-hit night for the Mets against the Reds, is hitting .333962. It’s nearly even.
If Braun can prevail after tonight’s game, he’d be the first Brewers player ever to claim a Nation League batting championship.
Braun is also right in the thick of things for the National League Most Valuable Player award.
