Brewer bats quiet in loss to Toronto

Marco Estrada surrendered a pair of solo home runs but held the Brewers close before falling 4-1 to the Toronto Blue Jays in Toronto.

Estrada leads the Major Leagues in home runs allowed with the number climbing to 26 now.  Estrada (7-5) worked six innings, allowing six hits before giving way to the bullpen.

Drew Hutchison was holding the Brewers in check.  He worked seven innings, striking out 10 hitters, including 8 of the first 12 to earn the win.

Jose Bautista and Colby Rasmus clubbed the Toronto home runs.

The Brewers got on the board in the sixth with Scooter Gennett singling with two outs.  Ryan Braun followed with a double to right field to score Gennett and cut the Toronto lead in half (2-1).

Toronto added a pair of insurance runs in the 8th against Rob Wooten on an RBI triple by Melky Cabrera and an RBI double by Edwin Encarnacion.

The final game of the series is this morning (11:37am).  Wily Peralta (9-5, 3.20) goes for the Brewers.  Toronto counters with J.A. Happ (7-4, 4.29).
