MILWAUKEE (AP) - Mike Fiers pitched seven dominant innings and Jonathan Lucroy and Aramis Ramirez each hit two doubles as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 6-1 on Tuesday night.

Fiers (3-1) held the Blue Jays to two hits and one run and retired the final 18 batters he faced. He struck out six and walked one to help Milwaukee win its fifth straight game.

The Blue Jays have lost six of seven.

Milwaukee jumped on Toronto starter J.A. Happ (8-8) immediately, belting three doubles to take a 2-0 lead in the first inning.

The Brewers added two doubles in the third to extend their lead to 4-1. Milwaukee hitters connected for another pair of doubles in the fifth and added two more runs.

Happ lasted just 3 1-3 innings, giving up six hits and four runs.
