Brewers continue as baseball's winningest team with win over Pirates

The Milwaukee Brewers are still the winningest team in baseball after beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-4 at Miller Park Sunday.

Prince Fielder homered twice, fell just short of a third homer, and scored the winning run on Bill Hall's pinch-hit single in the eighth.

Fielder denied being upset after Matt Capps beaned him on Saturday night. But with Capps on the mound Sunday, Fielder barreled around third, slid home safely and then jumped up-and-down and yelled while Capps was protesting the call.

Plate umpire Tim Timmons then got in front of Fielder and guided him toward the Brewer dug-out.

Fielder denied saying anything to Capps.

But before the game, General Manager Ned Yost had a warning not to cross the 260-pound-plus Fielder. "You don't want to make that kid upset ... for your own good," Yost said.
