Blue Jays  4  Brewers 3

It all happened in the fifth.  Fifth inning that is, when the Blue Jays took a 4-0 lead on Morales' two-run homer.  Fine. Good.

Then, Jays starter Joe Biagini was tagged for three runs and the Brewers narrowed in on the lead.  Alas, the Jays relievers pitched solidly denying Milwaukee any opportunity to get runs on the board.  Osuna final out & save.  Danny Barnes the win.

Jays' rookie Anthony Alford had his first career hit, a double. 

Game recap:


Blue Jays 8  Brewers 4

Whoa Blue Jays!  A 'towering' win that saw the Jays hit four home runs including the grand slammer by Ryan Goins.  Not only did the Jays sweep the Brewers in this two-game series but anytime you beat the top team in home runs in the league this year as the Brewers are, it has to be a confidence booster.  Especially for the injury-riddled Blue Jays.

Goins, Bautista, Pillar and Travis were the home run heroes, coupled with Jays starter Marcus Stroman who improved his w/l record to 5-2. 

Did we mention Anthony Alford in last night's game?  He had his first career hit  but has been placed on the DL due to a fractured wrist.  Some way to spoil a call-ups major league career.
Dwight Smith Jr. from the Jays Buffalo Triple A affiliate fills Alford's spot on the roster.
