Burnes, McCutchen lead Brewers to victory

Corbin Burnes lost until the eighth inning, Andrew McCutchen and Mike Brosseau homered and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 5-4 on Saturday.

The latest Cy Young Trophy winner snapped his season-best three-game winning streak, but he didn’t look as sharp as he did in Monday’s 2-0 win over the Cardinals.

In his first career start against Toronto, Burnes (6-4) got to fly close to Matt Chapman and Bo Michette, as well as an RBI groundout to Cavan Biggio.

He struck out nine and gave away two walks. He relinquished the mound leading 5-4 with runners on first and second and two outs in the eighth to Devin Williams, who struck out Alejandro Kirk.

Chapman doubled with two outs and scored on Lourdes Gurriel Jr.’s single off Josh Hader, but the closer escaped with his 22nd save when Gabriel Moreno grounded out to first.

Five days earlier, Burnes (6-4) held off the Cardinals with two hits, two walks and 10 strikeouts in seven innings.

For the Blue Jays, the Dominicans Vladimir Guerrero Jr. 4-1, Teoscar Hernández 4-0, Raimel Tapia 3-0 and Santiago Espinal 1-0. Mexican Kirk 2-0. The Cuban Gurriel Jr. 3-2 with a run scored and a remould. The Venezuelan Moreno 4-0.

For the Brewers, Dominican Willy Adames 4-1 with two runs and one RBI. The Mexican Luis Urías 3-2.
