MILWAUKEE — Prince Fielder hit a solo homer with one out in the 12th inning and the Milwaukee Brewers, helped by a triple play, beat the San Francisco Giants, 2-1, on Sunday.

With Randy Winn on second and Ryan Garko on first in the sixth inning, Aaron Rowand hit a grounder that third baseman Casey McGehee fielded right on the bag. McGehee touched third and threw to second baseman Felipe Lopez for a force, and Lopez's relay to Fielder completed the Brewers' first triple play in 10 years.
