Prince Fielder took a hanging curveball from Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia in the fourth inning and cranked it into the second row of seats in rightfield at Yankee Stadium on Sunday. It was Fielder's first home run since hitting two against Boston at Comerica Park on April 7.
The Tigers first baseman hadn't been hitting for much power lately, but he was still hitting -- he finished the New York series batting .309. Settling for singles has impressed Fielder's manager, Jim Leyland, who said opposing pitchers are staying away from the slugger's wheelhouse.
Fielder said he hadn't been feeling any pressure.
