The crowd favorites were down 2-1 in the sixth inning when the outfielder showed up at the plate, with Matt Chapman and Bo Bichette on the trails. Hernandez gave pitcher Brendon Little no chance, kicking out one of his offerings 392 feet from home plate. The 29-year-old athlete has thus approached the plateau of 20 circuits in 2022, he who now has 19.
Earlier in the match, Hernandez had also signaled with his glove. In the fourth inning, he ran a long distance before sliding to the ground to catch a powerful shot from Franmil Reyes, possibly preventing the Cubs from increasing their lead at this point.
Aside from Hernandez, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. also had success, hitting the ball from the safety net three times, driving in two runs. Among other things, he had his 27th long ball this season.
On the mound, Kevin Gausman (10-9) picked up the win for the crowd favorites. In six rounds of work, he notably made nine opponents bite the dust. He also gave up two of the opposition’s three runs, on five hits and a walk. For his part, Jordan Romano closed the debate with his 28th save of the season.
The Blue Jays will now attempt to complete the sweep on Wednesday, having suffered this fate in their previous series against the Los Angeles Angels.
