The Toronto Blue Jays welcome the Milwaukee Brewers to the Rogers Centre in Toronto for two interleague games this week. The Blue Jays schedule sees the two teams meeting this week for the first of two two-game series during the regular season. Season average for Blue Jays tickets is $123.50, but each game this week will have an average price lower than that number on the secondary market. The series as a whole is 36% below the season average.
7/1 – Marco Estrada vs Drew Hutchinson | Avg. Price: $89.22 | Get-in Price: $18
The series begins Tuesday night when Drew Hutchinson takes the mound for the Blue Jays against Brewers pitcher Marco Estrada. The average price for Tuesday Blue Jays vs Brewers tickets is $89.22, the more expensive game of the series but still 23.75% below season average, with a get-in price of $18. Hutchinson enters Tuesday’s game with a 5-6 record and 4.00 ERA and has had significant trouble finding success at home this season, allowing 25 earned runs on 35 hits over 27 2/3 innings in six home starts. Estrada is 7-4 with a 5.06 ERA. The Blue Jays will also be giving away a free bucket hat to the first 20,000 fans in attendance.
7/2 – Wily Peralta vs J.A. Happ | Avg. Price: $67.80 | Get-in Price: $11
The second and final game will feature Blue Jays lefty J.A. Happ against the Brewers’ Wily Peralta. The average price for Wednesday Blue Jays vs Brewers tickets is $67.80, 45.1% below season average, with a get-in price of $11. Happ takes the mound on Wednesday with a 7-4 record and 4.29 ERA. Peralta has found success this season, posting a 9-5 record and 3.20 ERA through the first half.
Following a two-game stint in Toronto, the Brewers schedule will have the team travel to Cincinnati to play the Reds in three games at the Great American Ballpark. The Blue Jays head to Oakland for four games after hosting the Brewers.
Both teams have played well this season and currently sit atop their respective division midway through the season. Despite their first place honors, the Blue Jays have little room for error as the AL East is tight-knit with the second place Orioles just one game back. The Brewers, however, are quite comfortable in the NL Central as the second place Cardinals trail the team by 6.5 games.
