Fielder Smacks Team-Record 46th HR, Brewers Beat Reds

Prince Fielder hit his NL-leading 46th homer, setting a Brewers franchise record, and Milwaukee beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-3 on Saturday night to stay close in the NL Central.

Milwaukee began the night two games back of the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs, who won the opener of a day-night doubleheader at St. Louis.

Fielder's solo homer in the third off Kirk Saarloos gave the Brewers a 3-1 lead and surpassed the previous team home-run mark he shared with Gorman Thomas (1979) and Richie Sexson (2001, 2003).

Fielder extended his career-best hitting streak to 13 games and is batting .422 with seven homers and 12 RBIs in September. He came out for a curtain call and got a hug in the dugout from Damian Miller.
