Carter powers Brewers to 3-2 win over Padres
MILWAUKEE (AP) Chris Carter hit a towering solo homer and a tiebreaking RBI double, breaking out of a long slump and leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 3-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday.
Carter was mired in an 0-for-23 slide before he belted a 443-foot homer off the scoreboard in center field in the third. Carter, who finished with three hits, doubled home the winning run against Kevin Quackenbush (1-2) in the seventh.
Jonathan Lucroy also homered for Milwaukee, which salvaged a split of the four-game series.
Brett Wallace homered for San Diego.
