Stat Of The Day: Prince Is A Run Scorer

Prince Fielder was on base four times today (five if you count his fielder's choice) and crossed the plate four times, scoring more than half of the Brewers' seven runs.

Fielder's four runs scored set a new career high and tied a franchise record. His previous record was three, which he had done nineteen times and twice this season (most recently on June 15). He's scored 13 runs in the Brewers' last nine games, which is almost 20% of his season total. Before this recent binge he had only scored nine times in his previous 24 games, and hadn't scored multiple times in the same game since June 15.

Fielder is the 35th player in franchise history to score four runs in a game, and is the first Brewer to do it since Ryan Braun on May 8, 2010. Paul Molitor did it six times over the course of his tenure, while no other Brewer has done it more than three times.
