Ryan Braun ties Robin Yount's Brewers HR record with grand slam

In grand fashion, Ryan Braun made some Brewers history on Sunday.

With the bases loaded in the bottom of the fifth, Braun unloaded for a grand slam. Here it is:

The blast was the 251st home run of Braun's career, which ties him with Robin Yount for the most in Brewers history.

Here's the top five:
1. Braun, 251
1. Yount, 251
3. Prince Fielder, 230
4. Geoff Jenkins, 212
5. Gorman Thomas, 208

The Brewers franchise only dates back to 1970 (or 1969, if we include the one Seattle Pilots season), so it's not all too surprising to see such a low number for the franchise leader. Some are even lower. Here they are:

Nationals/Expos (Vladimir Guerrero, 234)
Diamondbacks (Luis Gonzalez, 224)
Rays (Evan Longoria, 197)
Marlins (Giancarlo Stanton, 181)
Padres (Nate Colbert, 163)

Of note: Darryl Strawberry holds the Mets' record with 252, so the next Braun homer ties that. Also, that Padres leader is a pretty good way to stump your friends with a trivia question.
