Chapman powered a Garrett Hill (1-3) shot into the stands in the second inning. Beaten on the trails by Teoscar Hernández, he scored his fifth and sixth points in that series, which the local favorite won 3-1.

Doubles from Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette at bat in the fifth round sealed the game despite a homer from Javier Baez just before.

José Berríos (8-4) excelled on the mound, allowing just one run, three hits and one walk in seven innings. Tim Mayza and Jordan Romano then ran perfectly in the next two heats, with the latter making his 24th save of the season.

Hill, on the other hand, gave up four runs, six hits from the safety spot and two free passes in five innings.

good streak

Since firing Charlie Montoyo, the Jays are now 11-3. They had previously displayed a 1-9 record on the US West Coast, eventually defeating the manager.

Everything is going like clockwork for the Jays, who are firmly established in the US at number two in the east.

“I love it,” said interim manager John Schneider, according to the team’s official website. We’ve just had a tough time on the road and with everything that’s happened off the pitch. I love the consistency with which the players play. Offensive, defensive and on the hill.”

The Blue Jays now enjoy a day off on Monday before traveling to Florida where they will face the Tampa Bay Rays twice starting Tuesday. The Canadian team will play its next nine games in the United States.

In summary

In addition, Alek Manoah is scheduled to make his next start. He suffered a blow to his elbow against the Tigers on Friday, but X-rays showed no serious injuries. He is expected to face the Twins in Minnesota on Thursday.

Manoah, who has a stellar 11-5 record and a 2.43 ERA, shot easily on Saturday.
