Recap: Milwaukee vs. Toronto

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Khris Davis drove in a pair of runs while Mike Fiers turned in another stellar effort, as Milwaukee took down Toronto, 6-1, in the opener of a two-game interleague set.

Rickie Weeks, Jonathan Lucroy, Ryan Braun and Aramis Ramirez also knocked in a run apiece for the Brewers, the NL Central leaders who have won five consecutive games.

On the heels of his 14-strikeout performance against the Cubs, Fiers (3-1) retired the final 18 batters he faced, eventually going seven innings and allowing a run on two hits with six strikeouts.

"I wanted to be aggressive in the strike zone and make them swing the bat," Fiers said.

Munenori Kawasaki drove in the lone run for the Blue Jays, who skidded to their sixth loss in their last seven. J.A. Happ (8-8) was charged in defeat for four runs on six hits over just 3 1/3 frames.

"We got outplayed and it started with me," Happ said.

Milwaukee picked up two runs in the opening frame, as Carlos Gomez led off with a double, came in when Lucroy followed with a double and Ramirez added an RBI double two batters later.

The Brewers came back with two more in the home third thanks to an RBI double from Braun and sacrifice fly from Davis.

It was a 6-1 game for the home squad in the fifth, as Ramirez doubled and scored on a Davis double, who then crossed the plate when Weeks followed with a base hit.

Fiers exited the contest after seven innings, failing to allow a baserunner after Colby Rasmus doubled with none out in the second. Dioner Navarro led off with a single, moved up on the double, then, after Juan Francisco fanned, scored on Kawasaki's groundout.

Happ then fanned to end the frame, and Fiers rolled through the rest of the Toronto lineup unscathed.

Zach Duke and Brandon Kintzler followed up by setting down all six Blue Jays in turn, making it 24 consecutive batters retired.
