The Milwaukee Brewers (28-25) take one of the lowest-scoring lineups in the National League on the road to face the Toronto Blue Jays (28-26) at Rogers Centre on Tuesday to open a three-game Interleague series.

The Brewers are playing their first of seven games on the road after wrapping up a seven-game homestand (3-4). They won only one out of four in their last series against the Giants, taking the finale 7-5 on Sunday at American Family Field.

William Contreras was 2 for 4 with a home run, two runs, and three RBIs. Owen Miller added two runs and two RBIs on two hits. The Blue Jays just wrapped up a seven-game road trip (3-4).

They won two of three against the Twins in their last series, taking the finale 3-0 on Sunday at Target Field. George Springer went 2 for 3 with a double and one run.

The teams are meeting for the first time this season. Last season, the Brewers won two of the three games between the teams.


Adrian Houser (1-0, 2.25 ERA) is set to get the start for Milwaukee. The righty threw 5.1 scoreless innings in his last start, a 4-0 road win over the Astros on Wednesday. He got the win, yielding two hits while striking out three and walking one.

Houser made one start against the Blue Jays in 2022, a 9-4 home loss on June 24. He surrendered five runs on nine hits over six innings, striking out three and walking one.

Southpaw Yusei Kikuchi (5-2, 4.56 ERA) will toe the rubber for Toronto. Kikuchi made one start against the Brewers in 2022, throwing two innings in a 5-4 road defeat on June 25. He gave up six hits and walked one, while striking out five in the loss.

In his last start on Wednesday, Kikuchi took the loss on the road against the Rays. He threw five innings and gave up five runs on eight hits, striking out five and walking two in the 7-3 defeat.
