Toronto belted six homers in the game, including two each from Rasmus and Bautista -- who now has 22 for the season -- while Encarnacion hit his 19th and Brett Lawrie also went deep in the win.

Darren Oliver (1-2) notched the with win with a scoreless eighth inning and Casey Janssen picked up his seventh save as the Blue Jays evened their three-game set.

Aramis Ramirez belted a grand slam for the Brewers.
