Fielder is currently the Majors' RBI leader, by two over the Cardinals' Albert Pujols.

Fielder homered in the fourth, and the Brewers scored four times in the seventh to complete a three-game sweep in Phoenix for the first time since 2000.

It was also Milwaukee's first road sweep of any kind since mid-June.

Felipe Lopez and Mike Cameron hit back-to-back run-scoring singles in the seventh.

Lopez singled twice and walked twice, and Alcides Escobar drove in two runs for Milwaukee.

Carlos Villanueva got the win with two scoreless innings of relief. He's now 3-10.

Chris Narveson made his second career start for Milwaukee, and gave up two runs in three-plus innings.

Trevor Hoffman pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 32nd save.

Daniel Schlereth took the loss in relief. He's 0-4.

Mark Reynolds homered for the Diamondbacks, who lost their ninth game in their last 10.

The Brewers will open a four-game series in Chicago tonight against the Cubs. Right-hander Jeff Suppan faces Cubs' right-hander Ryan Dempster.
