Saturday’s 6-2 win put the Blue Jays (83-65) in second place in the race for the MLS runner-up, half a game away from the New York Yankees.
The Yankees (83-66) lost 11-3 at home to Cleveland. The Boston Red Sox (85-65) stayed ahead of the Jays with a 9-3 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
Canadian swimmer Benny Oleksiak, who won seven Olympic medals, was attended by 14,722 people. The pitch took protocol, sending the ball straight into the catcher’s glove.
The twins appear to be heading for their ninth straight win in Toronto since August 17, 2017.
They were leading 2-0 after the first half thanks to his second run to right-hand man Josh Donaldson, the former third base officer of the Blue Jays, who also had a solo rider in the Minnesota win on Friday.
But Jays’ Stephen Matz (13-7) took over after Donaldson’s home run on Saturday, scoring 16 of the next 17 hits.
A run from Donaldson followed by a single cross from Miguel Sano ended Matz’s day after 96 runs, five runs and two-thirds of the job.
Southpaw hit five hitters, walked twice and lost only three hits to win his fourth straight hit.
Matz is now linked to Hyun Jin Ryu in Blue Jays’ winning count of 13.
Rookie pitcher twins Billy Uber (2-3) didn’t allow any hits until the fourth inning.
Second base captain Marcus Simin fired the charge in the fourth inning with Homer solo to leave the field in his 40th campaign.
Then Vladimir Guerrero Jr. took a walk and hit Bo Pechet one song down the center.
Hernandez blasted off at the premiere, sending a high ball that just broke through the left fence in his 28th home run, giving the Jays a two-point advantage.
Toronto added their seventh-place lead when underweight twins Giovanni Moran scored goals for Alejandro Kirk, George Springer and Guerrero.
Kyle Barraclough replaced Moran and was greeted with two solo points from Bichette.
Blue Jays loyalist Trevor Richards finished in the sixth inning to replace Matz. Tim Meeza hit the three hitters in a row in the seventh as well as Nick Gordon in the hits to start eighth.
Right player Adam Semper finished eighth with the help of a great playing piece from Bichette. The short player grabbed the ball deep to his right before making a powerful first base throw to take out Donaldson.
The Torontonians will resume work on Sunday afternoon, facing those same opponents.
