Brewers go out with a bang, Susac hits first homer in season finale

Posted: Updated:

   DENVER (AP) -- Andrew Susac hit his first homer of the season, a two-run drive in the 10th inning that lifted the Milwaukee Brewers over the Colorado Rockies 6-4 in Sunday's season finale.
   After Orlando Arcia hustled for a two-out double, Susac followed with a liner to left off Chris Rusin (3-5). It was Susac's first homer since July 12 last year while with San Francisco.
   Reliever Tyler Thornburg (8-5) won after blowing a lead for a second straight day. Corey Knebel pitched a perfect 10th for his second save, striking out Charlie Blackmon to end the season.
   There was plenty of intrigue with Chris Carter and Arenado dueling for the NL home run title. Both were kept in the park and finished tied with 41.
   DJ LeMahieu sat out Sunday to protect his lead in the batting title race. It worked as LeMahieu edged Washington's Daniel Murphy by percentage points -- .3478 to .3465.
