Broxton, Carter homers rally Brewers past Mariners in 9th

Posted:


SEATTLE (AP) -- Keon Broxton and Chris Carter homered and Scooter Gennett had an RBI single during a four-run ninth inning, lifting the Milwaukee Brewers over the Seattle Mariners 7-6 on Sunday to end a six-game losing streak.
   
The Brewers trailed 6-3 after eight innings but rallied against Tom Wilhelmsen (2-4). Broxton hit his second solo homer of the game and Carter followed with a two-run shot, his 29th, to tie it.
   
After Domingo Santana singled, Vidal Nuno relieved Wilhelmsen and allowed a single to Manny Pina. Gennett then blooped a single into left-center that scored Santana from second.
   
Tyler Thornburg (5-4) pitched the final two innings for the win.
   
Milwaukee trailed 6-1 after four innings. Ryan Braun had a two-run double in the sixth off rookie Ariel Miranda, making his third career start since being acquired from Baltimore for Wade Miley on July 31.
