Prince Fielder may not be in the post season this year, but he is not going quietly either as the season is winding down. Fielder help power the Milwaukee Brewers to a 8-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Fielder is one player the Brewers need to lock up very long term and make sure he is kept happy. It seems year after year he just gets better and he still is very young.
Manny Parra who has missed some starts with neck spasms came back from it and pitched 7.0 innings giving up just four hits and one earned run while striking out eight batters in the process. Parra at times this season has looked very good and other times he has struggled. Trevor Hoffman did come in and get his 36th save as well. He may get 40 this year if the Brewers can play a little better these last few games.
Prince Fielder was the hitting star last night hitting his 43rd home run adding four RBI’s to his total which now stands at 136. Mike Cameron also went deep for the Brewers who pounded out 12 hits in the process. Finishing strong would be nice, but it seems the Brewers win one or two then lose one or two in a row. I guess just the kind of season it has been for them.
