Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun blasted his 250th career home run in the first inning of Wednesday's game at the Chicago Cubs, moving him one home run shy of tying Robin Yount for the franchise's all-time record.

Braun has reached his total far faster than the Hall-of-Famer Yount. According to MLB.com, Braun has hit 250 long balls in 4,619 at-bats while Yount hit 251 in 11,008 at-bats.

Braun's total will likely be looked at with scrutiny because of his 2013 suspension for using performance enhancing drugs. He now has 20 home runs on the season, his high since 2012 when he finished second in National League MVP voting.
