ATLANTA - Teoscar Hernández hit two homers and drove in three runs, and Hyun Jin Ryu pitched seven sharp innings and the Toronto Blue Jays won 4-1 on a cold Wednesday night to continue their dominance of the Atlanta Braves.

Toronto improved to 5-0 against the Braves this season and has outscored them 35-16.

Hernández has hit four homers and has driven in 15 runs in 12 games since returning from the COVID-19 injured list on April 30. He said he wasn't worried about falling behind on his baseball skills while missing 16 games.

"When I was at home during my recovery, I wasn't doing a lot of baseball stuff," Hernández said. "I was trying to get my body ready, because I knew if my body was ready, the baseball stuff was going to be there."
