Fielder homers in Brewers win over D-BacksPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX -- Prince Fielder homered to tie Milwaukee's single-season RBI record, Alcides Escobar had a two-run single in a four-run seventh inning and the Brewers completed a three-game sweep of Arizona in a 5-3 victory.
Fielder's fourth-inning home run, his 39th of the season, gave him a major league-leading 126 RBIs and tied him with Cecil Cooper for the Brewers' franchise record. Cooper, the Houston Astros' manager, had 126 RBIs in 1983.
Fielder, who had two hits, singled off left-hander Daniel Schlereth to open the Brewers' four-run seventh inning, when they took a 5-2 lead.
