Fielder's Homer Powers Brewers

By  | 

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Prince Fielder hit a go-ahead home run and Dave Bush turned in another strong start as the Milwaukee Brewers completed a three-game sweep of the Florida Marlins with a 5-3 victory Thursday.

Trevor Hoffman pitched the ninth for his eighth save, and has yet to give up a run this season. The Brewers have won nine of 11 and begin a nine-game road trip at St. Louis on Friday night.

It was the fourth straight loss for the Marlins and a short afternoon for Josh Johnson, who walked five in only four innings.

With the game tied at 3 in the fifth, Fielder connected against reliever Burke Badenhop (2-2). It was Fielder's eighth homer of the season and his third in the last three games.
