Chris Carter clubbed his 40th home run of the season, but that’s all the offense the Milwaukee Brewers could muster, falling to the Colorado Rockies 4-1 at Coors Field in Denver on Friday night.
Carter’s blast kept him within one of Colorado’s Nolan Arenado for the league lead with two games left to play. Arenado clubbed his 41st in last nights Rockies victory.
Carter becomes just the sixth Brewer in team history to reach the 40 home run milestone.
The Brewers finished the game 1 for 12 with runners in scoring position. Their only hit came in the six from Hernan Perez, but Carter was cut down at the plate, trying to score from second base.
The loss went to Brewers rookie starter Brent Suter. He allowed all four runs on 10 hits in five innings of work.
Wily Peralta pitches game two of the series for the Brewers today.
