Braun returned to the starting lineup after sitting out Friday with a sore right Achillies. He was hurt Tuesday in San Diego, running to second base for his 100th career steal. Roenicke indicated the team would be cautious with Braun in the coming days to avoid a flare-up.
"I'll talk to him during the games, and if there's a time he needs a day off here in the next couple of days, we'll do it," Roenicke said. "We'll see how he does."
The Brewers entered Saturday with no home runs in their last three games, but still led the National League with 32 long balls this season. Colorado entered the day second with 31 home runs and St. Louis and Atlanta had 29 apiece.
