Prince Fielder went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles in Sunday's win over the Orioles.
Nothing spectacular here for Fielder, but he continues to rake, as he's done all season. The big man is slashing .316/.379/.470 with 17 homers and 78 RBI. If he can keep that average on the right side of .300, this would go down as just the second season of his career in which he's achieved that feat. Aug 30 - 6:01 PM
