MILWAUKEE (AP) — Ryan Braun has received a standing ovation in his first at-bat back with the Brewers following his 65-game suspension last season.

The right-handed slugger drew overwhelming applause as he strode to the plate in Milwaukee's opener against the Atlanta Braves. There may have been a trickling of boos, but those were easily drowned out.

Braun hit in his customary No. 3 position in the lineup in his first regular-season game since July 21. He was retired on a high fly to left.

Braun also was put to work early at his new position in right field with two putouts in the first two innings. He has apologized several times this offseason following his suspension last summer following Major League Baseball's investigation of the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic. Braun accepted the penalty July 22, given for violations of MLB's drug agreement and labor contract.
