Jonathan Villar was a bright spot for the Brewers. He allowed six earned runs over five and a third innings of work.

A decent starting effort by Biagini started to unravel in the fifth when three consecutive singles scored the Brewers first run. Biagini departed after walking Eric Thames but reliever Danny Barnes (1-2) struck out Ryan Braun and Travis Shaw to end the threat.

Getting out of the first inning unscathed was a big start for the Jays on Tuesday, especially given how things went in Biagini's previous start.

INDIANS 8, REDS 7: Edwin Encarnacion hit two of Cleveland's four homers off rookie Amir Garrett and scored the go-ahead run on a wild pitch, leading Cleveland past Cincinnati at Cincinnati. "I think something to be taken from that is to take a look at my pregame routine, see if I can make an adjustment, because I think what's different about the that you throw before the game, your arm gets a chance to settle down, and as soon as you have to get ready to throw, you get up quickly, and then you're in the game". Toronto manager John Gibbons used the interleague series to tinker with his lineup, starting OF Jose Bautista at third for the first time since April 2013.

The Brewers, meanwhile, are all about the first inning, outscoring opponents 45-15 in he opening frame, the largest run differential of any team in any inning this season.

Bautista, 36, has played a total of 388 games at third base in his career but has primarily played right field in his nine-plus seasons with the Blue Jays.

Gibbons' daughter, Jordan, is lead vocalist and plays rhythm guitar for the alt-country band Southtown, which will perform at the Rogers Centre on Sunday as part of Country Day when the Blue Jays host the Texas Rangers. Manager Craig Counsell said Thames' recent battle with strep throat may have been a factor.

"I put him in there to speed up Donaldson a little bit", Gibbons joked.
