Prince Fielder Homers Three Times As Pirates Lose

Prince Fielder homered three times in the Brewers' 6-4 defeat of the Pirates Tuesday night. The Pirates took a 1-0 lead early on a single by Matt Pagnozzi, but Fielder homered on a pitch about a foot up and out of the zone in the third, and then Rickie Weeks went back-to-back to make it 2-1. The Pirates scored two in the fifth, but then Fielder hit a two-run bomb in the bottom of the inning. 

The Bucs got one to tie it in the sixth, but left the bases loaded - it's a shame that Pagnozzi was 1) in the game and 2) sacrificed with one out - that might have cost the Pirates a chance to really score some runs, since Randy Wolf allowed a double and three walks that inning.

Jared Hughes entered in the seventh to face Ryan Braun and Fielder and promptly allowed a walk and Fielder's third dinger - it hasn't been a particularly good couple of days for Hughes.
