Fielder's Late Homer Leads Brewers to 6-5 Victory over Phillies

Prince Fielder hit a two-run homer in the eighth, and the Milwaukee Brewers came back from a four-run deficit to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-5 and remain in first place in the National League Central.

Corey Hart robbed Tadahito Iguchi of what could have been a game-tying homer in the ninth for Milwaukee, which remained a game ahead of Chicago.

Philadelphia stayed five games behind the first-place Mets with the loss.

Milwaukee trailed 5-1 going into the bottom of the sixth inning and 5-4 heading into the eighth.

But with one out, J.J. Hardy singled.

Ryan Braun popped out, bringing up Fielder, who hit a 1-2 pitch by Tom Gordon deep into the right-field seats, delighting the sellout crowd of more than 42-thousand.

Corey Hart robbed Iguchi of a home run in the ninth to help preserve the save for Francisco Cordero.
