Prince Fielder was my pick to win NL MVP this season, and he’s heating up. For the second time this week, a home run by Fielder won a game for the Brewers at Miller Park. Today’s was to dead center off lefty Marlins reliever Renyel Pinto and in the bottom of the 8th inning. Fielder has come out of the worst power slump in his life to hit 4 HR in a week’s time.
A crowd of 44,169 even got to see Eric Gagne work a 9th inning in which he struck out three hitters and didn’t allow a run to earn his 7th save.
Both clubs now sit at 14-10 for the season. This is an important time for Milwaukee Brewers baseball. The Brewers need Ben Sheets to be healthy.
