"But I think, regardless of my fuck-up, it was the right time to get him out."Schneider added that it won't happen again.Meanwhile, Manoah acknowledged Schneider's trip to the mound caused some confusion."There was just some silence," Manoah said. "I had known Pete had come out there. When he started asking me if I wanted to stay in the game, I was like, 'Well, maybe Pete didn't come out here?' I wasn't sure."The Blue Jays ended up losing the game 6-5 in extras after blowing a three-run lead in the eighth inning. Schneider decided to go to Jordan Romano for a four-out save, but the closer proceeded to serve up a game-tying three-run homer to Ryan O'Hearn.Copyright © 2023 Score Media Ventures Inc.
