MLB: Toronto spoils Abraham Toro’s arrival to the Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers confirmed Quebec callup Abraham Toro, who joined the club in time for the evening game against the Toronto Blue Jays which they won 7-2.

Toro grounded the ball in the ninth and was hit in the arm on the first shot he saw by reliever Yemi García.

Whit Merrifield hit a two-run double with the Blue Jays.

Merrifield capped off his team’s four-run first inning with his 11 doubles, scoring on Matt Chapman and Brandon Belt.

Visiting William Contreras slammed, at first, with a two-run homer, before the Toronto club pressed on.

The comeback began with hit singles by Vladimir Guerrero and Chapman before Merrifield struck out.

“It’s always hard to get up after giving up a four-run inning,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.

In the Blue Jays’ second inning at bat, Bo Bichette drove in a run using an option, then Belt added one run to return.

In the third, it was Cavan-Biggio’s turn to push a runner up to the plate on his own.

Guerrero and Alejandro Kirk each provided three singles, among the Blue Jays’ 14 songs.

Yosei Kikuchi (6-2) allowed two runs and three hits in five innings.

He walked five times but found his way back to victory after being defeated in his last two games.

The 31-year-old Japanese notched his 500th strikeout in his fourth career at the expense of Joey Wimmer.

Nate Pearson had three hits in the seventh inning.

“The game was an excellent example of what we can do well,” said Blue Jays coach John Schneider. Good start from our start, good defensive work and very good presence at the bat. »
