Ryan Braun was asked Sunday morning about his prospect to repeat as National League MVP, and he brushed the topic away.

"We have so many things going on here that are fun and exciting, so I've never been really focused on individual accolades," Braun said. "Those things are the result of team success, anyway."

A few hours later, he enjoyed both.

The individual accolades came from Braun's fourth-inning home run, which made him the sixth player in Brewers history to hit 200 home runs, and another in the sixth that gave Braun the Brewers' seventh 40-homer season.

The team success was a 3-0 win over the Mets in front of 38,677 fans at Miller Park, who watched the Brewers keep pace in the National League Wild Card race.
