The Stat Line Of The Night — 7/12/11 — Prince Fielder

by: JamieD On  Wednesday, July 13, 2011

On Monday night the fans at Chase Field were booing Prince Fielder for his decision to keep hometown favorite Justin Upton off the National League’s four-man Home Run Derby squad.  The boos continued when the Brewers’ first basemen stepped up to the plate for his first at bat of last night’s All-Star Game, but he quickly changed that, and the game, with his second at bat in the fourth inning.

With two runners on and no one out, Fielder belted a long ball off Texas Rangers pitcher C.J. Wilson, giving the National League a 3-1 lead.  It was Fielder’s first, last and only hit of the game, but it was an important one as it put the N.L. ahead for good, en route to the 5-1 victory.

There is no telling whether Fielder and the Brewers will benefit from his three-run homer when the National League receives home-field advantage in the World Series, but for now it earned him the All-Star Game MVP and “The Stat Line of the Night” for Tuesday, July 12, 2011.
