Diamondbacks rookie Collmenter able to shut down Brewers’ Braun, Fielder

Oct 5, 2011, 5:27 AM | Updated: 3:16 pm

PHOENIX — In the first two games of the National League Division Series Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder led the Milwaukee Brewers over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Going into Game 3 they were a combined 9 for 16 at the plate with six RBI, six runs scored and a home run each.

Tuesday night Diamondbacks rookie Josh Collmenter went at them with a gameplan in mind and executed.

“I wasn’t going to give in to Braun, and the game plan is to pitch Fielder in so I wasn’t worried about that,” Collmenter said of the first inning when both Braun and Fielder were able to reach.

Braun and Fielder would both go 0-for-2 with Collmenter walking Braun and hitting Fielder in the first. A Rickie Weeks strike out would end the Brewers’ threat.
