Carter homers, Brewers turn triple play in win over Reds


MILWAUKEE (AP) — Chris Carter homered, Ryan Braun delivered a late clutch hit and the Milwaukee Brewers turned their second triple play of the season in a 5-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.

Carter hit his 38th home run of the season leading off the second against Anthony DeSclafani (8-4).

Jose Peraza put the Reds in front with a three-run homer with one out in the fifth off Milwaukee starter Zach Davies.

The Brewers scored in the sixth on Carter’s RBI groundout to cut the lead to 3-2.

Milwaukee loaded the bases with no outs in the seventh, chasing DeSclafani. Scooter Gennett drew a walk off reliever Tony Cingrani to tie the score. Milwaukee regained the lead when Braun followed with a two-run single off Blake Wood.

Brent Suter (2-1) retired the only batter he faced to get the victory.

Tyler Thornburg gave up a run in the ninth but notched his 13th save in 18 tries.
