Marco Estrada couldn't get much support as he continued to give up too many home runs.

Boxscore

The Brewers offense has been really good this year. Unfortunately, the lineup doesn't perform so well every game. Today was one of the poorer offensive performances Milwaukee has had this season as they notched just four hits on the day, plating one run. While seven players managed to reach base safely for the team, 11 struck out.

Milwaukee scored their only run today in the 6th inning when Ryan Braun doubled home Scooter Gennett, who had previously hit a two-out single. The team had a couple other chances, including a bases loaded situation in the seventh, but couldn't get enough output to win.

Meanwhile, Marco Estrada had a weird start. It was pretty good, if you look at his overall like: 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 H, 2 K, 1 BB. I'll take that start anytime. However, both runs scored on solo home runs, showing exactly the same problem Estrada has had all year. Today, he was fortunate they were only solo shots. Other days, multiple runs come in on those and Estrada has a disaster start. Though his end-line was good, this shouldn't inspire much confidence in him moving forward. If he put up this start and didn't allow a home run, I would feel a lot better about it.

Either way, two runs was enough for the AL East-leading Blue Jays to win. They picked up another couple of runs in the bottom of the eighth to really put it out of reach, but they weren't necessary.

The two teams will play one more tomorrow. It's another early game, with an 11:37 CT start time.
