Jose Bautista and Colby Rasmus hit solo home runs, Drew Hutchison struck out a career-high 10 to snap a two-start losing streak and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-1 on Tuesday.

The Blue Jays ended a three-game losing streak, one shy of their season high, and won for the third time in 14 meetings with Milwaukee.

The Brewers had their four-game road winning streak end as they lost away from home for just the third time in 13 games.

Starting for the first time since leaving a June 22 game at Cincinnati with a strained left hamstring, Bautista gave the Blue Jays an early lead with a two-out blast off the facing of the second deck in the first inning. The homer was his first since June 6 against St. Louis.
