Recap: Game 126 - Brewers at Mets - Brewers smack and sweep Mets around at home


Final Score: Milwaukee 6, New York 2

Prince Fielder drove in two runs as the Milwaukee Brewers took a 6-2 win in the finale of a three-game set against the Mets at Citi Field to sweep New York and continue their surge.

Ryan Braun went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored for the Brewers, who have won nine of their last 10 games. Yovani Gallardo (14-8) worked seven innings, giving up just two runs on six hits with six strikeouts to get the victory.

Milwaukee leads St. Louis, which plays in Chicago later Sunday, by nine games for first place in the NL Central -- the largest division lead for the club in team history.

Also, thanks to a 22-3 run since losing consecutive games on July 23-24, the Brewers stand at 76-52 and are 24 games over .500 for the first time since holding an 80-56 mark on August 31, 2008.

Lucas Duda's two-run homer accounted for all the runs for the Mets, who have lost nine of 11. R.A. Dickey gave up just two runs on six hits over seven innings, but did not factor into the decision.

The score was tied after seven innings, but the Brewers went ahead in the eighth.

With Manny Acosta (1-1) on the mound, Nyjer Morgan worked a walk to begin the frame and Braun singled to right to put runners on the corners and chase Acosta. Tim Byrdak then took the mound and got Fielder to hit a grounder to second that Justin Turner fielded cleanly, but he threw the ball out of the reach of Ruben Tejada and everyone was safe with Morgan scoring the go-ahead run.

Jason Isringhausen then took the mound and got the next two batters out, but Jerry Hairston Jr. singled home Braun for a 4-2 advantage.

Francisco Rodriguez, who got the win in Saturday's game in his first appearance against his former team, pitched a 1-2-3 eighth inning.

Recap: Game 125 - Brewers at Mets - Mets fight back against K-Rod, only to lose it


Final Score: Milwaukee 11, New York 9

Casey McGehee's two-run single in the ninth capped a four-run Milwaukee rally to help the club take an 11-9 win over the New York Mets in a seesaw affair at Citi Field.

Prince Fielder hit a three-run homer and drove in four while Ryan Braun and Yuniesky Betancourt both hit a two-run home run for the Brewers, who have won the first two games of this three-game set despite blowing a six-run lead on Saturday.

Francisco Rodriguez (5-2), who Milwaukee acquired in a trade with New York last month, got the win in his first appearance against his former team despite allowing the Mets to go ahead in the eighth with a three-run frame.

Milwaukee now leads St. Louis by 8 1/2 games for first place in the NL Central, the largest division lead for the club in team history.

Also, thanks to a 21-3 run since losing consecutive games on July 23-24, the Brewers stand at 75-52 and are 23 games over .500 for the first time since holding an 80-57 mark on September 1, 2008.

Angel Pagan went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer, Lucas Duda added a two-run pinch-hit double and Ruben Tejada doubled twice and scored twice for the Mets, who have dropped eight of their last 10.

The Brewers had blown a six-run lead between the seventh and eighth innings, but began their rally in the ninth off of Jason Isringhausen (3-3), who didn't retire any of the four batters he faced and was pulled after issuing a bases- loaded walk to Mark Kotsay.

Manny Acosta then took the mound and quickly induced a short fly-out to right field from Braun then had Fielder down in the count, but the burly slugger was able to dig out a low pitch and punch a single to right to tie the game. McGehee then plated two runs with a single to right.

John Axford had no trouble in the ninth as he set down the Mets in order for his 37th save of the season.

2011 Home Run Derby Participants and Odds


Major League Baseball announced the participants for this year's Home Run Derby as selected by captains David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox and Prince Fielder of the Milwaukee Brewers.

MLB made a slight change to this year's format, deciding to name a captain from both the American and National Leagues and have that player choose the remaining three participants for the competition.

Ortiz, the 2010 derby champ, selected his teammate Adrian Gonzalez, Blue Jays outfielder and the league's current home run leader Jose Bautista and the Yankees' Robinson Cano for the AL squad.

Fielder, the champion of this event two years ago, will also be joined by a teammate in Rickie Weeks, while Matt Holliday of the St. Louis Cardinals and Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers round out the NL participants.

Cecil Fielder says the Mets have a chance to sign his son , Prince Fielder


According to the NY Daily News, Former Yankee star Cecil Fielder, the father of Milwaukee Brewers slugger Prince Fielder, told the Daily News Monday that he could see his son landing in New York - but not in the Bronx.

"I don't think the Yankees are gonna get him," Fielder told The News at the Bombers Boomer Broadway Softball Classic, a charity event at Yankee Stadium. "But I think if everything goes well on the other side, the Mets are one of those teams that if they get that situation all squared away, they could get him."

Prince enters this week's three-game series against the Yankees hitting .305 with 21 homers, and he's expected to be a hot commodity come December. He signed a one-year, $15.5 million deal with the Brewers in January, and Fielder conceded that his son would "probably like to stay in Milwaukee." But the 27-year-old is represented by super agent Scott Boras, a likely sign he's headed for the open market.
