Fielder Homers, Brewers Top Rangers

Posted:

PHOENIX (AP) -- Prince Fielder hit his first home run of the spring and Randy Wolf out dueled C.J. Wilson, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-1 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday.

Wolf allowed only Julio Borbon's two-out single in the third over six shutout innings. He walked one, struck out seven and faced only three batters over the minimum.

Wilson was nearly as untouchable, scattering two hits over his first five innings before tiring and giving up Fielder<s two-run, two-out home run just over the left-field fence in the sixth.

Wilson, the Rangers' one-time closer who earned a spot in the rotation, gave up four hits with four walks and eight strikeouts. He struck out five straight over the fourth, fifth and sixth innings.
