Those who expected Ryan Braun to have a tough 2012 season - no matter the reason - probably need to reboot that thought process.

Braun continued to put up Braun-like numbers Saturday night, bopping a pair of home runs to spark the Milwaukee Brewers to a 10-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks at Miller Park.

Shortstop Cody Ransom joined in the fun with a home run and career-high-tying four runs batted in, and surprising righty Mike Fiers had another quality start with six shutout innings and 10 strikeouts.

Braun's third multi-homer game of the season put him alone atop the National League leader board with 22, in addition to his .313 batting average, 55 runs batted in, .611 slugging percentage and 168 total bases.

Before the season, critics offered various reasons for predicting a down year for Braun, including the loss of Prince Fielder as protection and the tumultuous winter that included a positive drug test and successful appeal of a 50-game suspension that played out publicly instead of behind the scenes as designed.

"It's not surprising me," said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke. "I knew it was going to be a little different dynamic as far as how he goes into opposing ballparks. But, saying that, there are some parks that are on him anyway.
