Fielder ill; streak ends at 327
It was the longest current streak in the majors and the longest in Brewers history. Robin Yount played in 274 games from 1987-1989.
“The trainer called me around noon,” Brewers manager Ken Macha said. “The Houston team doctor gave him an IV, but he looks terrible. We held off as long as possible before we had to change the lineup.”
Fielder’s streak started Sept. 4, 2008 against San Diego. The last game Fielder missed was Sept. 3, 2008 against the Mets.
Fielder started every game during the streak, 326 at first base and one at DH.
