Baseball: Ryan Braun, Giancarlo Stanton are one-two in home runs

September 30, 2012 |  1:54 pm

Ryan Braun and Giancarlo Stanton grew up not far from each other in the San Fernando Valley, and now they're one-two in the National League in home runs.

Braun, a Granada Hills graduate playing for the Milwaukee Brewers, has 41 home runs. Stanton, a Sherman Oaks Notre Dame graduate playing for the Miami Marlins, has 36 home runs.

Maybe it's something in the water or the youth teams they grew up playing on.
