Colin Rea delivers stellar performance in Brewers’ win over Blue Jays

Colin Rea put on a pitching clinic, allowing only three hits in seven innings as the Milwaukee Brewers secured a 3-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night. This marked Rea’s longest outing in eight years, showcasing his prowess on the mound.
The Brewers, who had been struggling to hit homers in their recent games, saw Jackson Chourio and Willy Adames go deep in this matchup. Adames, in particular, had a standout performance with a home run and a sacrifice fly to help secure the win.
Rea, with a final line of 85 pitches, four strikeouts, and one run allowed, proved to be a formidable force against the Blue Jays lineup. His last seven-inning outing was back in 2016 while playing for the San Diego Padres.
Despite a late-game scare from the Blue Jays, the Brewers’ defense held strong, culminating in a game-ending play by second baseman Brice Turang. Trevor Megill closed out the game with his 10th save of the season.
The Blue Jays’ Alejandro Kirk provided their lone run with a homer, but they were unable to generate much offense against Rea’s dominant pitching.
On the Blue Jays side, José Berríos had a solid outing, striking out four and allowing three runs over 5 2/3 innings. However, the Blue Jays were unable to overcome the Brewers’ strong performance.
The game also featured a bizarre moment when Vladimir Guerrero Jr. lost grip of his bat, sending it flying into the protective net above the Blue Jays’ dugout.
Looking ahead, the series continues with Yusei Kikuchi taking the mound for the Blue Jays and Carlos Rodriguez making his major league debut for the Brewers.
