Kody Clemens homered and tripled and drove in four runs for the Phillies, who won their seventh straight game. The Phillies, who have won 18 of their last 21 games, dominate the Majors with 26 victories this season.

“Everything seems to be working,” Harper said.

Danny Jansen and Alejandro Kirk each hit a double for the Blue Jays, who have lost six of their last seven games.

Sanchez (2-3) allowed one run, six hits and two walks. He struck out five batters.

“Our starting pitchers are spectacular,” Harper said.

Harper, who had three hits, ended Jose Berrios’ (4-3) night of work with a bases-loaded home run after two outs in the fourth inning. Harper homered in a third straight game.

“He’s the one steering the ship,” Phillies manager Rob Thomson said.

Before the match, Berrios dominated the Majors with a 1.44 ERA. He finished the night with a 2.85 ERA, having allowed eight runs and seven hits in 3 2/3 innings.

“They made him sweat,” Blue Jays manager John Schneider said. He’s one of the best pitchers in the majors, but they made him work. »

Berrios has given up more runs to the Phillies than the seven runs allowed in 43 2/3 innings in his previous seven starts.

“I think we had a really good game plan,” Harper noted.

Schneider was ejected by home plate umpire Andy Fletcher in the fourth inning, when Berrios was also replaced by Trevor Richards.
