MILWAUKEE - Jesse Chavez hasn't spent much time around the Blue Jays this season.Called into duty on Tuesday because of injuries to three starting pitchers, Chavez, who has spent most of the year with Triple-A Las Vegas, made just his second appearance with the team and his first Major League start. But after going just 2 2/3 innings before eventually getting bailed out by six Toronto home runs -- including back-to-back solo shots by Colby Rasmus and Jose Bautista in the top of the ninth -- on the way to a 10-9 win over the Brewers, Chavez proved it doesn't take a seasoned veteran to appreciate what the club has been able to do lately. "This team's word is resilience," Chavez said. "They never get down, they never give up and they always keep fighting." Twice, the Blue Jays took the lead in the top of an inning on Tuesday only to fall behind by more than two runs in the bottom half. Twice, however, led by two sets of back-to-back homers by Rasmus and Bautista, they were able to come back and escape with their first win in Milwaukee since 1996.
