Chris Carter’s 3-Run Homer Ends Atlanta’s Four Game Winning Streak

MILWAUKEE (AP) – Chris Carter hit a three-run homer, Chase Anderson won his third straight decision and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Atlanta Braves 4-3 on Wednesday night. The victory snapped Atlanta’s four game winning streak.

Anderson (7-10) allowed two runs and six hits over 5 1/3 innings. He walked one and struck out three, helping the Brewers snap a three-game skid.

Tyler Thornburg picked up his fourth save in eight chances with a perfect ninth.

Carter connected on a 1-2 pitch from starter Joel De la Cruz (0-5) during a four-run third. Ryan Braun singled in the first run and then Carter cleared the bases with his 26th homer.

De La Cruz left after getting hit in the right knee by Orlando Arcia’s two-out grounder in the fourth. The ball deflected to first baseman Freddie Freeman, who tagged Arcia to end the inning.

De La Cruz hobbled off the field under his own power. The Braves said he has a right knee contusion, X-rays were negative and he is day-to-day.
