— By the time Prince Fielder sees Cecil Cooper this weekend, he likely will have broken the Astros manager’s record for most RBIs in a single season by a Milwaukee Brewers player.

“It’s really an honor to be mentioned with a guy like Cecil, a first baseman, especially,” Fielder said. “This organization has had some great players, so it’s a big deal. It’s really cool.”


Fielder hit his 39th home run of the season Sunday to tie Cooper for the franchise record of 126 RBIs in a 5-3 victory over Arizona, completing a three-game sweep.


Cooper, whose Astros begin a three-game series in Milwaukee on Friday, set the mark in 1983.


Fielder, who leads the majors in RBIs, also singled to start a four-run seventh inning off Arizona left-hander Daniel Schlereth (0-4) to give the Brewers a 5-2 lead.


Alcides Escobar drove in two runs with a single, and Felipe Lopez and Mike Cameron added RBI singles for a 5-2 Brewers lead.


Carlos Villanueva (3-10), the fourth of seven Milwaukee pitchers, retired all six batters he faced, and Trevor Hoffman recorded his 32nd save.
