Fielder sidelined with flu

BY foxsports • September 13, 2010

Flu-like symptoms forced Prince Fielder out of Monday night's Milwaukee lineup, ending his streak of playing in 327 consecutive games.

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.
