Fielder's two run walk-off single in 9th leads Crew past Astros 6-5

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Prince Fielder hit a two-run single in the ninth inning, capping Milwaukee's four-run rally and giving the Brewers a wild 6-5 victory over the Houston Astros on Friday night.

Pinch-hitter Joe Inglett set up Fielder's clutch hit with a two-run homer that got Milwaukee within one. Rickie Weeks singled and Corey Hart walked before Fielder hit one down the line off Matt Lindstrom (2-2).

Hunter Pence ran down the ball and made an accurate throw, but Hart just slid past the tag of catcher Jason Castro. Weeks grabbed Hart in excitement and Fielder leapt into the air before Inglett came to hug the burly slugger.
