Yesterday's Results

Brewers 6, Blue Jays 1

The Brewers put on a doubles show in Miller Park, with 7 of their 10 hits for extra bases. This helped the Brewers put up two runs in the first, third, and fifth innings. It was more than enough to back another strong start from Mike Fiers, who pitched seven innings and allowed only one run. In addition, the Brewers pitchers retired the last 24 Blue Jays in a row. It was a dominant performance all-around.
