Braun moves up in batting order
Braun hit second in his debut on May 25, 2007, and the next day, going 4 for 8 with a homer and three RBIs. He moved to the third spot in his third game and has spent the overwhelming majority of his career there, hitting .316 with 104 homers and 329 RBIs from that position.
Prince Fielder is batting third instead of fourth for the third time this season.
