Mike Cameron robs the Giants (AP Photo/Morry Gash)Wow.

What a game.Prince Fielder hit a walk-off single to lead the Brewers to a 7-6 victory Saturday night over the San Francisco Giants.

The Brewers rallied from a 6-4 deficit entering the 9th to win in dramatic fashion.The Giants built a 4-0 lead through five innings with help from Pablo Sandoval's two home runs.

Barry Zito was cruising until he walked Cory Hart and Ryan Braun back to back.

Prince Fielder stepped in and hit an absolute bomb to right field to bring the Brewers within one run.

The Giants brought in reliever Brandon Medders to face Casey McGehee, who promptly hit the first pitch he saw to the left field bleachers.

Miller Park went crazy as the Brewers tied it up.Mike Cameron kept the tie intact in the 7th when Nate Schierholtz hit what looked like a go-ahead home run off of Todd Coffey.

Cameron timed his jump perfectly and brought back a home run in left-center field.

It is sure to be a Web Gem and was a truly great and clutch play.Unfortunately, Cameron couldn't be clutch two innings in a row.

He came up with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the 8th inning.

He hit a sharp chopper to second, though, and the Giants turned a double play.The start of the 9th brought in Trevor Hoffman, with "Hell's Bells" blaring in Miller Park.

The crowd would fall silent as the Giants would load the bases and hit two sacrifice flies to give them a 6-4 lead.

With one of the National League's top closers in Brian Wilson coming in, all hope seemed to be lost for the Crew.However, with one out, Craig Counsell hit a single and pinch-hitter Mat Gamel drew a walk.

Cory Hart, who was mired in an 0-19 hitting slump, hit a single to center to score Jason Kendall, who was pinch-running for Counsell (I wonder how many times Jason Kendall has been a pinch runner? I'm guessing this is the first time ever).

Ryan Braun struck out on a nasty curve, bringing up Prince Fielder with two outs.

Prince smoked one down the right field line and Gamel scored the game-winning run.

The team celebrated on the field, with Bill Hall knocking the big fella Prince down.

It was a great game and a great finish.Random note on the game.

The Brewers were celebrating the Spanish heritage of Wisconsin by wearing "Cerveceros" jerseys (Cerveceros is Spanish for Brewers).

The Giants also wore jerseys with the name "Gigantes".

I think it's cool that the team has respect for other cultures and can do something like this.

Unfortunately, the Chorizo racing sausage couldn't pull out the victory, disappointing the crowd.
