The Toronto Blue Jays were a step slow and were outplayed by the Milwaukee Brewers in the final game of their series losing 10-3. This game was decided early and despite having plenty of time to muster up a comeback, Toronto was unable to catch a rhythm. 

Jose Berrios started for the Blue Jays, while Chi Chi Gustave started on the mound for the Brewers. Toronto looked great to start the top of the first inning. George Springer and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. were able to get on base early. Alejandro Kirk stepped up to the plate and on his second pitch homered for a three-run home run.

Immediately giving the Blue Jays a 3-0 lead out the gates. The bottom of the first comes around and Milwaukee got those runs back quickly. Rowdy Tellez, the former Blue Jay, hit a bomb through centerfield for a two-run homer. With the lead at just 3-2, Omar Narvaez stepped to the plate with Julio Urias on first base. Berrios threw a four-seam fastball that was doubled deep to center allowing Urias to score the tying run.

The second inning was all Milwaukee. Gonzalez took care of business going three up and three down with Blue Jays batters. With momentum on the Brewers' side, they capitalized with five runs in the inning courtesy of Tyrone Taylor, Jace Peterson, Kris Davis, Willy Adames, and Tellez once again.

Berrios had a tough night and would get yanked early into this game due to his lacklustre pitching. Toronto tried looking for answers all throughout their bullpen calling on Matt Gage, David Phelps, Tim Mayza, and Jeremy Beasley. However, none of them were able to provide any lift for Toronto. Milwaukee would add the finishing touches with two additional runs in the bottom of the sixth to seal this game. 

The Blue Jays drop to a record of 40-32, while the Brewers improve to 43-22 on the season. Toronto will focus on their new series against the Boston Red Sox tomorrow at 7:07 PM ET.
