Braun Extends Himself with Contract


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers extended left fielder Ryan Braun's contract five additional years through the 2020 season.

The deal includes a mutual option for one additional year and is the longest commitment to a player in Brewers franchise history.

Braun has been elected to start in each of the last three All-Star Games and is one of just five players in history to hit 125 homers and post a .300 batting average over the first four seasons of his career.
