MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brewers first baseman Prince Fielder has been named National League player of the month for May.

Fielder batted .321 in May with 13 homers and 28 RBIs.

The 13 homers were a club record for any month, surpassing the mark set by Gorman Thomas and tied by Greg Vaughn and Jeromy Burnitz.

Fielder is the second Brewer to win the award after Jeromy Burnitz did it in June 1999.

Milwaukee switched from the American League to the National League in 1998.
