The Toronto Blue Jays used the long ball to win a long game at Miller Park Tuesday night 10-9 over the Milwaukee Brewers. John Axford took the loss giving up back to back home runs from Colby Rasmus and Jose Bautista in the top of the 9th inning. Axford pitched despite being with his wife earlier in the morning who delivered their second child. Former Brewer draft pick Brett Lawrie launched a two run homer in the third to give the Jays an early lead against 23 year old Tyler Thornburg making his major league starting debut. The rookie was just called up from AA Huntsville where he was 8-1 on the season. The Brewers gave him the lead with a four run third inning as Jays starter Jesse Chavez literally went wild. He hit a batter with the bases loaded and walked in a pair of runs in the rally. Thornburg held the lead until the 6th when three straight Blue Jays went deep. Rasmus, Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion rocked consecutive home runs to put Toronto on top 6-4. Milwaukee had an immediate answer in the bottom of the 6th when Aramis Ramirez connected with the bases loaded for the 10th grand slam home run of his career putting the Brewers up 9-6. Manny Parra uncorcked a couple of wild pitches in the 7th that led to a pair of Blue Jay runs but Francisco Rodriguez pitched a perfect 8th inning to set the table for Axford to close it out but he could not. Milwaukee (31-37) will send Yovani Gallardo to the mound in the series finale at Miller Park Wednesday afternoon.
