The outfielder had to change something and it was something as simple as beginning to relax at the plate instead of pressing to impress his new team.
In the past two games, Brown cut down on his strikeouts and hit in second home run of the season in the Braves’ 5-2 loss Thursday at Greeneville.
“For some people they’re not power hitters, some people aren’t speed guys; for me, it’s just trying to hit the ball hard and after that, I can’t control what happens,” Brown said prior to Wednesday’s home game. “I’m not trying to do too much with the ball, not trying to hit the ball out of the ballpark, just trying to hit gaps and hit hard line drives.”
