Recap


Brewers 7, Blue Jays 6
: Aramis Ramirez led off the bottom of the seventh inning with his eighth home run as Milwaukee overcame a furious comeback by Toronto.

Ramirez finished 3-for-3 with three RBIs and Rickie Weeks added two hits and drove in a pair of runs for the Brewers, who have won three of four.

After Jose Bautista launched a three-run blast in the top of the seventh to knot the contest after Milwaukee had built a 6-1 lead, Ramirez lined a pitch from Robert Coello (0-1) down the left-field line that hit the edge of the padding underneath the foul pole. It initially was ruled a foul ball, but the umpires reversed the call after viewing a replay.

Kameron Loe (4-2) picked up the win despite surrendering Bautista's 20th homer of the season. Francisco Rodriguez tossed a scoreless eighth and John Axford worked a perfect ninth for his 12th save in 15 chances.

Brett Lawrie, who scored three times, hit Brewers starter Randy Wolf's second pitch of the game over the wall in center field to give Toronto an early lead. But Weeks delivered a two-run single in the bottom of the first and Ramirez capped a four-run second with a two-run double for a 6-1 advantage.

Edwin Encarnacion led off the sixth with a homer for the Blue Jays, who had their three-game winning streak halted in the opener of a nine-game road trip.
