Colin Rea throws 7 strong innings as Brewers top Jays

Blue Jays, Brewers

Colin Rea pitched seven strong innings, Jackson Chourio and Willy Adames homered and the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the visiting Toronto Blue Jays 3-1 on Monday.

Adames added a single and a sacrifice fly for Milwaukee in the opener of a three-game series. It was the start of a six-game homestand for the Brewers, who were coming off a 2-4 road trip. Milwaukee has won six straight home games.

The Brewers ended a run of five straight games without a homer. They hit multiple long balls for the first time in 11 games.

Alejandro Kirk hit a solo home run for the Blue Jays, who are 2-2 on a six-game trip. Spencer Horwitz had two of Toronto’s four hits.

Rea (5-2) allowed one run and three hits with four strikeouts and no walks in his longest start of the season.

Toronto’s Jose Berrios (5-5) gave up three runs, five hits and one walk while striking out four in 5 2/3 innings.

Kirk hit his second homer of the season, a blast to left with one out in the third inning.

The Brewers tied the game in the bottom of the third. Jake Bauers led off with a single, but Berrios picked him off first base before allowing Chourio’s seventh home run of the year, a line drive to left-center.

Adames hit a shot to left-center, his 10th of the season, with one out in the fourth.

Milwaukee added a run in the sixth. Brice Turang led off with a walk and took third on a single to right by William Contreras. After Christian Yelich struck out, Adames hit a sacrifice fly to left. Zach Pop replaced Berrios and ended the inning with a strikeout.

Rea retired the final seven batters he faced before being replaced by former Blue Jay Joel Payamps, who pitched a eighth inning with one strikeout.

Trevor Megill worked around a two-out single by Horwitz in the ninth inning to earn his 10th save of the season.
