Caratini lifts Brewers over Rox, Counsell earns win No. 600
DENVER (AP) — Victor Caratini hit a go-ahead three-run homer in the sixth inning for the Milwaukee Brewers to help Craig Counsell earn managerial win No. 600 in a 6-4 victory over the Colorado Rockies.
Counsell reached the milestone in roller-coaster fashion, with his team trailing 3-0 after the first inning, rallying and then escaping a two-out, bases-loaded jam in the eighth.
Caratini provided the big blow by lining a slider from reliever Justin Lawrence over the fence in right-center.
It was Caratini's ninth homer of the season.
The Brewers are trying to make a late push for their fifth straight postseason appearance.
