Five players to watch in weekend Phillies-Brewers series
3 of 6
Braun has found a way to dominate the Phillies this season, having a two-home-run game in the last series in Philly.
Entering the series opener, Braun is .244 with eight home runs and 31 RBI this season. Against the Phillies, he has a .438 /.550/.938 slash line. Two of his eight home runs were against the Phillies.
Despite his success against the Phillies in the past, Braun had a rather quiet start to the series. He went 0-for-4 before being pinch-hit for.
The one time Braun faced Zach Eflin, he went 1-for-3 with a double. He also has gone 2-for-5 with a walk against Aaron Nola in his career. He could still make an impact in the second part of this series.
