Chris Carter goes deep twice, Brewers beat Angels 5-4


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Chris Carter hit two long home runs and drove in three, Junior Guerra won his first career major league start, and the Milwaukee Brewers rallied from an early four-run deficit to beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-4 on Tuesday night.

With the Brewers trailing 4-0, Carter's two-run homer in the third caromed off the black batter's backdrop in center. His solo shot in a three-run fifth to deep left-center off starter Nick Tropeano (1-1) put Milwaukee up for good.

Guerra (1-0), who was called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs this week, allowed seven hits and four runs in six innings.

The Angels nearly spoiled Guerra's night after loading the bases in the seventh with two walks and a single and nobody out. Reliever Michael Blazek escaped the jam after Cliff Pennington popped out and Yunel Escobar bounced into a double play.
