Fielder Homers, Brewers Rout Twins 11-1
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Prince Fielder hit one of four Milwaukee homers to give him an NL-best 67 RBIs this season and the Brewers beat the injury-riddled Minnesota Twins 11-1 Saturday night after Delmon Young left on a stretcher.
Carlos Gomez, Yuniesky Betancourt and Corey Hart also went deep as the NL Central-leading Brewers won their sixth straight over Minnesota.
The tumbling Twins dropped their fourth in a row overall and may have lost Young for a prolonged period after the left fielder jammed his right ankle against the wall in the fifth.
Yovani Gallardo (9-4) gave up a run over seven innings. Gomez homered off Francisco Liriano (4-7) to highlight a five-run third and Fielder’s 21st blast of the season, a two-run shot, capped the sixth.
