Chris Carter broke out of an 0-for-23 slump, helping the Milwaukee Brewers knock off the San Diego Padres 3-2 at Miller Park on Sunday.
Carter drove in a pair of runs with a home run and a rbi double. Jonathan Lucroy also homered for the second straight game and fourth in the last nine games.
The Brewers split the four-game series, despite going just 3-for-40 with runners in scoring position. They were 1-for-12 on Sunday.
Carter’s home run was his first since May 5 in Cincinnati.
Manager Craig Counsell gave Carter the night off on Saturday, to give him a mental break. He responded with a 3-hit performance on Sunday.
Another quality outing for Zach Davies who worked 6 1/3 innings in the win. Jeremy Jeffress pitched the 9th for his 10th save of the season.
The Brewers are off today. They’ll open a 3-game series against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night.
