Brewers Lose to Blue Jays

The Blue Jays scored just 14 runs in their previous seven games. But they jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first against Doug Davis (8-6), who lasted just 1 2/3 innings.

Bill Hall homered and had three hits for the Brewers, who have lost seven of eight.

Toronto sent nine batters to the plate in the first inning and scored on Shea Hillenbrand's RBI single, Gregg Zaun's run-scoring single and home runs by Hinske and Menechino. Hinske's homer landed in the Windows restaurant in center field.

"He needed that and we needed that," Gibbons said.

Hinske didn't realize he hit the ball that far.

"I've never gone up there. It's definitely cool," he said.

Hillenbrand added an RBI single off Davis in the second, giving the Blue Jays a 7-1 lead.

Davis gave Toronto's hitters credit, but also said he lacked command.

"I got behind and that's what got me in trouble," Davis said. "When I had to throw a strike they knew it was coming."

Wes Helms hit a sacrifice fly in the second, and the Brewers scored three runs in the third on Rickie Weeks' RBI double, Lyle Overbay's sacrifice fly and Carlos Lee's run-scoring single.

John McDonald gave Toronto an 8-4 lead with an RBI grounder in the third.

Hall homered off Walker in the sixth, ending his string of 18 1/3 scoreless innings.
