Prince Fielder got his 127th RBI yesterday to break the single season record for RBI’s for a Brewer. The record was 126 held by Cecil Cooper another very good Brewer first basemen. Fielder should be able to add to the record as well. The Brewers added icing on the cake as they won the game over Houston by a score of 7-2.
Jeff Suppan pitched a wonderful game for the Brewers going 7.0 innings and giving up just two earned runs and striking out seven batters in the process. The bullpen came in and finished up for the Brewers allowing no earned runs. Suppan knows that he must pitch well down the stretch as he is fighting for a job here or somewhere else.
The Brewers have been hitting the ball well lately and yesterday was no exception either. The Brewers got 13 hits with Ryan Braun going 3 for 5. When the Brewers get good pitching and hitting they are tough to beat. It seems it’s a little late now to get things going, but you can build for next year which is what many of these players are doing.
