Stat Of The Day: 200 And Counting

New, 9 comments

It took him over a week to do it but Fielder finally hit his 200th home run in the fifth inning Wednesday, and did so in an important situation: His two run shot tied the game at five, bringing the Brewers back from the dead temporarily in today's series finale.

As you've likely heard, the home run was the 200th of Fielder's career. He's just the fifth Brewer ever to reach that mark, and he's now just one long ball shy of tying Cecil Cooper for fourth place on the all time list:

Player HR
Robin Yount 251
Geoff Jenkins 212
Gorman Thomas 208
Cecil Cooper 201
Prince Fielder 200
Ben Oglivie 176
Greg Vaughn 169
Jeromy Burnitz 165
Paul Molitor 160
Ryan Braun 138

 

It's relatively likely Fielder will pass Cooper, Thomas and Jenkins to become the second most prolific home run hitter in Brewer history by season's end.

I also stretched the above list out to tenth to show you something I forgot to mention earlier: Ryan Braun's home run on April 29 pushed him past Rob Deer and into sole possession of tenth place on the all time list.
