Amidst the predictable boo-birds in Philadelphia*, Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun is having a splendid time Tuesday.

* NOTE: I'm not saying it's predictable because it's in Philadelphia, I'm saying it's predictable that any opposing fan base will boo Ryan Braun. Thanks!

First, to conclude the second inning, which possibly could have been a huge one for the Phillies, Braun did this:

He followed that up by hitting with two runners on in the top of the third and going yard:

"BOOOOOOO!!! CHEATER!!!!!!" says the disgruntled Phillies fan right before Braun launches a shot.

The homer was Braun's first since his season-ending suspension last season. The last time he homered in regular-season action was May 22, 2013. It didn't take him long to tack on another, though, because the following inning Braun hit his second homer of the game. That was a solo job, but two homers and four RBI through four innings -- with a two-run saving catch to boot -- is a pretty stellar beginning.

UPDATE: OK, so Braun is completely going nuts. He homered again in the eighth inning, giving him three homers and seven RBI on the day.
