The two of them put on quite a power-hitting show during their three-game weekend series. Plouffe hit two homers in the opener and Braun belted a pair in Game 2 on Saturday.
And Braun doesn't think Plouffe's jaw-dropping run of 10 homers in 14 games is a fluke.
"He's got a great head on his shoulders. I think he has great perspective," Braun said. "He has the right personality to succeed in this game. I've always said the way that you deal with adversity ultimately dictates the success that you have in this game. And he's the type of person that doesn't get too high or too low. He doesn't get overly discouraged when he struggles, and I don't think he's too high right now when he's playing as well as he is."
