MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Chris Carter homered and Jimmy Nelson won for the first time in seven starts as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Colorado Rockies 4-2 on Monday night.
   Nelson (7-13) gave up two runs and seven hits in six innings. He hadn't pitched past the fifth in any of his previous six starts. Nelson struck out four and didn't walk a batter for the first time this season.
   The Rockies got a run in the first when David Dahl scored on a wild pitch by Nelson.
   The Brewers tied it in the bottom of the inning when Jonathan Villar scored from third on an error by Colorado shortstop Daniel Descalso. Kirk Nieuwenhuis added a two-run single.
   Carter's solo homer to left in the third, his 30th of the season, off Chad Bettis (10-7) extended Milwaukee's lead to 4-1.
   Bettis gave up four runs and four hits. He struck out three and issued a career-high seven walks.
