New York — 30 games with Blue Jays After manager John Schneider has seen what big league teams can do in hot and cold weather.

And in a sport that can be, as he said Friday, "a beautiful dance," he often emphasizes the importance of skating to the elation. I know. Step between the lows, hoping as hell that the big moment will carry the day.

Although he's only won three in a row since he shut out the Yankees 4-0 here in the Bronx on Friday, the  Jays are on the right track again. seems to be directed

The team, which has been back-to-back both ways over the past few months, has taken him one of the bigger series this season to a strong finish. I'm trying to use it as a stepping stone for

"It's been the ups and downs of the season and we know they're good enough and talented enough," Schneider said to keep up the positive momentum. "And when it happens, it's not a feeling of 'I want to do it,' but a feeling of 'I'll definitely do it.'"

{50 After a rough two weeks, the Jays are back in the form they showed when Schneider assumed the interim manager position following the dismissal of Charlie Montyo. } The team is 18-12 and under rookie watch, teaming up with the free-falling Yankees, has suddenly become reasonably interesting in the American League East races.

Three days before Montoyo was fired, the Jays trailed him 16.5 games to the Yankees, but suddenly that margin was his eight. rice field. During a month that was tumultuous in many ways, Schneider was indoctrinated by management about the capricious nature of the sport.

"When you're funking a little bit, everybody tries to go a little too far." Schneider said. "When things are going well, you're not thinking about all the things that could go wrong, you're thinking about all the things that are going well."

Many things are going well these days.

For the third game in a row, the Jays have had a brilliant start.

It was the third time in four starts that Gaussmann disallowed a run.

"He was dialed in and basically mean," Schneider said of his right-handed ace. "It was a difficult line-up to navigate and he was efficient, precise and on point."

The offense worked well enough, even with George Springer out of the lineup after the drop. This big blowout in his four-game winning streak in his series came from Teoscar Hernandez hitting his two-run home run off his 421-footer.

"For us, it's really exciting when you play against a good team," said Hernandez, who hit his 18th home run of the season. "Then we can show what we have."

Still on a modest winning streak at this point, but making his 23rd start of the season. It has the potential to send a message, as Gaussmann remarked rather acrimoniously the day before.

"If we can come here and really beat them, I think we can definitely make a statement," he said, Gausman.

With his two games left, there is still work to be done, but thanks to the spirited Yankees, the Jays can easily do it.

Clearly, the Jays are currently trying to make the most of what's going on between the two teams in the coming days.

"I think you see [confidence] now," said Schneider following Friday's victory.

“Baseball is so much fun.


Easy to get hurt or out of luck.

But whatever the explanation, Springer seems unable to take a break.

Elbow inflammation injury. Springer was ruled out of the lineup on Friday with a knee contusion, just four games after returning from a stint on the list.
