There’s still plenty of baseball left to be played, so we might be getting a little bit ahead of ourselves here, but Monday’s win by the Cardinals at least makes it possible that Prince Fielder has played his final game at Miller Park as a member of the Brewers.
With the series now tied 1-1, the Brewers will have to win one of the next three games in St. Louis to ensure that they return home to Milwaukee for a potential Game 6 on Sunday. For what it’s worth, I picked the Brewers to win the series in six games, so I’m not ready to declare them dead yet.
Fielder, who will be in high demand as a free agent this winter, went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a double in Monday’s blowout loss. The 27-year-old first baseman is hitting .333 (8-for-24) with three homers, three doubles, six RBI and a 5/4 K/BB ratio during the postseason.
