Game #71- Toronto Blue Jays (40-31) @ Milwaukee Brewers (41-33) - game recap

 

Matt Chapman went 3-4 with 2 runs scored and an RBI in a 5-4 loss to the Brewers

After a solid win over the Brewers last night, the Blue Jays were looking for their 3rd straight win and 13th series win of the season. Zack Collins was recalled from AAA ball (and would presumably catch if something happened to Gabriel Moreno after Alejandro Kirk took the back swing of Jonathan Davis off his glove hand last night. Kirk was well enough to DH today). Infielder Otto Lopez was optioned to AAA-ball. Yusei Kikuchi got the start. Vlad was back in the field after DH'ing yesterday. Cavan Biggio got the start at 2B and batted leadoff. Could the Blue Jays make it three straight wins? Here is today's game recap.

Game #70- Toronto Blue Jays (40-30) @ Milwaukee Brewers (40-33) - game recap

Alejandro Kirk was 4-4 with 2 runs scored and 2 RBI in a 9-4 victory over the Brewers. Kirk had to leave the game in the 7th with a hand injury after getting whacked in the glove hand by the back swing of ex-teammate Jonathan Davis

After an off day yesterday, the Blue Jays began a stretch of 19 games in 19 days, which will include 5 games over the Canada Day long weekend due to a double header against the Rays to make up one of the postponed games due to the lockout that wiped out the first 2 weeks of games. They open the stretch of games this weekend with a 3 games against the Brewers. It will be old friend time as the Blue Jays face former teammates Jonathan Davis, who was recently recalled by the Brewers, and Rowdy Tellez. Davis was 2-4 in his recent season debut. Tellez is batting .251 with 10HR and 39RBI heading into Wednesday's games over 65 games. The last time these two squads faced each other was 2017 and the Blue Jays and Brewers split the 4 games with the Blue Jays outscoring the Brewers 15-13. Nate Pearson suffered a setback in his rehab from mono. He injured his lat in a recent rehab appearance and will miss an indefinite period of time. Yimi Garcia was placed on the IL with a back strain.  Righty Jeremy Beasley was called up to take his place in the bullpen. Alek Manoah got the start with Alejandro Kirk behind the plate. Georrge Springer remains out with an injured elbow. Vlad got the half day off as DH with Cavan Biggio at 1B. Raimel Tapia was in CF. Could the Blue Jays make it two wins in a row? Here is tonight's game recap.
