In the first inning of Game 1 of the NLDS against the Colorado Rockies, Milwaukee Brewers slugger tried to score from second on a wild pitch. It did not go well.
It brings a smile to my face to see Braun get thrown out at home to end the inning while trying to take two bases on a wild pitch with a guy who slugged 35 HR and drove in 108 RBI at the dish. #Rocktober #Rockies pic.twitter.com/RbxkliJebX

Making matters worse is that pitcher Antonio Senzatela was struggling, having already allowed a hit, a walk, and thrown two wild pitches in the inning. The gaffe ending the inning, depriving Jesus Aguilar the chance to hit with two men in scoring position.
Naturally, Twitter did not spare Braun for his mistake.
Yeah…You probably didn't need to take a chance like that, Ryan Braun.

I'm guessing Ryan Braun does not stop when stop light blinks yellow.

Where was Ryan Braun going? The pitcher was rattled a bit. 2 wild pitches. A walk. I mean seriously.

It’s safe to say that Braun wants that one back.
