Yovani Gallardo pitched into the seventh inning (6 2/3 IP) and got plenty of long ball support as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 8-3, taking two of three in the series at Miller Park.
Gallardo earned his 6th win (6-5), allowing 3 runs and 7 hits with 2 walks and 7 strikeouts.
Ryan Braun clubbed his 20th home run of the season, one of four home runs for the Brewers. Martin Maldonado, Corey Hart and Carlos Gomez also homered for the Brewers in the win.
The Brewers and Blue Jays combined to hit 16 home runs in the 3-game series. The last time the Brewers and their opponent combined for that many homers at Miller Park was back in 2001 against Minnesota.
Toronto clubbed 10 of the 16 home runs in the series, including 6 on Tuesday.
The Brewers actually trailed early. Edwin Encarnacion homered to straightaway center to give Toronto a 1-0 lead in the second. But the Brewers answered that home runs by Corey Hart and Martin Maldonado in the bottom half of the inning.
The Brewers wound up taking 2 of 3 from Toronto in the series. They’ll take today off and face the White Sox in Chicago on Friday night.
