Prince Fielder hit his 39th home run and he also tie the club mark for RBI’s in a season with his 126th as the Brewers stopped the Diamondbacks 5-3. Fielder has played well all season long and continues to be one of the best Brewers players this season.
Chris Narveson started for the Brewers and pitched just 3.0 innings giving up two earned runs. He replaced Manny Parra who still is having neck problems and was scratched from the lineup. The Brewers used six other pitchers out of the bullpen as well with Trevor Hoffman picking up his 32nd save for the Brewers. Hoffman probably would have more saves if the Brewers had more close games and chances to win.
The Brewers managed just eight hits with Lopez, Fielder, and Escobar each getting two hits a piece. The Brewers got the hits they needed and made the most of them which is why they won the game. Prince Fielder should be able to break the RBI mark set by Cecil Cooper in the next series which is against the Chicago Cubs. The Brewers surprised me in the Arizona series they actually played well and did the things they needed to do to win. I just wish they would have done that all season long.
