Teoscar, with two Hrs., and Guerrero Jr. with one lead the Blue Jays



Teoscar Hernández hit a pair of home runs, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. also connected and the Toronto Blue Jays won for the first time since firing manager Charlie Montoyo, defeating the Philadelphia Phillies 8-2 on Wednesday night.

Toronto swept the two-game series, taking the final game under interim manager John Schneider, who will be in charge of the team for the rest of the season.

Hernandez homered against Zack Wheeler in the fourth and also in the eighth against Bubby Rossman to reach 13 career multi-homer games. They were his 10th and 11th homers of the campaign.

Ross Stripling (5-3) gave up two runs in seven innings to snap a three-out winless streak as the Blue Jays won consecutive games for the first time since June 30 and July 1 against Tampa Bay. Toronto went 1-9 in that time.

Schneider was promoted from bench coach after the Blue Jays made Montoyo the third manager fired this season. The Angels replaced Joe Maddon with Phil Nevin on June 7, four days after Philadelphia fired Joe Girardi to make way for Rob Thomson.

For the Phillies, Dominican Yairo Muñoz 3-0.

For the Blue Jays, Dominican Teoscar Hernández 4-2 with 2 runs scored and 4 produced; Santiago Espinal 4-2; Raimel Tapia 3-1 with a run scored and one RBI and Vladimir Guerrero 3-1 with a run scored and two RBIs.
