Not So Fast, Prince Fielder

Prince Fielder was under the impression he had won Saturday's game for the Milwaukee Brewers against the Minnesota Twins. Think again, buddy.

With two out in the bottom of the ninth and the Twins leading 4-3, Russell Branyan tied it up with a 415-foot bomb off closer Joe Nathan.

An inning later, the husky Fielder hit a drive off the center-field wall that appeared to hit the yellow line. In accordance with the ground rules at Miller Park, since the ball didn't go over the wall, it was not a homer. And since Fielder is a total fatass, he barely made it to third base. Matt Guerrier pitched out of the inning and they were onto more free baseball.

The real game-winner belonged to Brian Buscher, who was called up from the AAA Rochester Red Wings just a day earlier. After Brewers reliever Julian Tavarez loaded up the bags by way of a base hit to Joe Mauer and two walks in the twelfth, the fill-in third baseman drove in two on a single for his third straight hit. With two outs, Michael Cuddyer hit a pinch-hit, two-run triple before scoring on a Mike Cameron error.

The Big Sweat pitched a perfect 12th as the Twins won 9-4.

I didn't see it and I don't care for Fielder; however, from your description it sounds like he got a triple. At least he didn't get a single.
