MILWAUKEE (AP) Fresh off another stellar outing, Mike Fiers first wanted to talk about a rough patch early in the game and offer credit to his defense.
"I think early on I was a little erratic around the strike zone and then I pulled it together later on," said Fiers, who won his third consecutive start since being recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Aug. 9 as the Milwaukee Brewers defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 6-1 Tuesday. "My defense came through. There were a lot of great plays."
Fiers (3-1) was plenty spectacular himself, holding the Blue Jays to two hits and one run over seven innings. He retired the final 18 batters he faced in a 106-pitch outing.
