DENVER (AP) Chris Carter hit a tiebreaking home run with two outs in the top of the 10th inning, leading the Milwaukee Brewers to a 4-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday night.

Carter's 41st homer of the season came on a 3-2 pitch against Adam Ottavino (1-3) and salvaged a victory after the Milwaukee bullpen gave up a three-run lead in the eighth and ninth.

Colorado's rally spoiled a strong outing for the Brewers' Wily Peralta, who tossed six scoreless innings to close out his season.

The Rockies scored twice in the eighth off Corey Knebel but left two runners on. They tied it against Tyler Thornburg (7-5) in the ninth on pinch-hitter Tom Murphy's RBI double.

The Rockies got the tying run to second with one out in the bottom of the 10th but Jacob Barnes struck out David Dahl and got Jordan Patterson to line out to right to pick up his first save.
