Prince Fielder had a lot of great days as a Brewer, but this was one of his best ones.
On this day in 2007 the Brewers beat the Cardinals 9-1 behind one of Prince Fielder's best offensive games. He went 2-for-2, walked twice and drove in four runs with a pair of home runs, one each off Kip Wells and future teammate Braden Looper.
Fielder's second home run was his 50th of the season, making him the first Brewer and the youngest player in major league history to reach 50 homers. Here are the top five:
Fielder finished the year with these 50 home runs, won the NL Silver Slugger Award and finished third in the voting for NL MVP.
