Prince Fielder hits walk-off homer to lead Brewers past Giants 2-1

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Prince Fielder hit a solo home run with one out in the 12th inning and the Milwaukee Brewers, helped by a triple play, beat the San Francisco Giants 2-1.

Fielder hit his 37th home run, connecting against Merkin Valdez (2-1). Fielder untucked his shirt before reaching second base and jumped on home plate as his teammates fell over backward in unison in a choreographed celebration.

Mitch Stetter (4-1) pitched the 12th to earn the win.

The Brewers turned their first triple play in 10 years, pulling it in the sixth on Aaron Rowand's hard grounder.
