Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder continued to swing a hot bat on Tuesday night, homering twice in a 7-5 win over the Houston Astros at Miller Park. Fielder has 10 home runs in the month of June, giving him 17 for the season.
Yovani Gallardo and rookie catcher Jonathan Lucroy also homered for the Brewers. Gallardo now has three home runs this season. He pitched 6-innings and while he didn’t have his normal superb stuff, Gallardo still earned the win (8-3).
The Brewers have won 7 of their last 9. They’ll play the rubber match against the Astros this afternoon.
