• Encarnacion Homers as Blue Jays Sweep Athletics

    Summary of 10 articles · Updated May 27, 2014
    Just ask the other Blue Jays players who talked about Encarnacion hitting a home run for the 12th time in May and 14th time overall in a 3-1 victory against the Oakland Athletics on Sunday. Encarnacion's solo shot in the sixth inning was his 13th in May, which set a Blue Jays franchise record. Encarnacion's 14 home runs this season are tied for third most in the majors. Mark Buehrle became the first nine-game winner in the majors, Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Lind hit back-to-back home runs and the Toronto Blue Jays extended their winning streak to eight games, beating the Tampa Bay Rays 9-6 on Tuesday night. Lind and Encarnacion both connected off Rays right-hander Alex Cobb, who lost for the first time since April 1 and saw his streak of 24 2-3 scoreless innings snapped. He entered play on Tuesday night hitting .341 with two doubles, nine homers and 14 RBIs over his past 11 games. And sure enough, when MLB expanded the October format in a move that seemed tailor-made for the brutal AL East's also-rans, Toronto turned in arguably the most disappointing season in franchise history a luckless, injury-prone and rotation-plagued 74-88 squad financed by the franchise's first nine-figure payroll.
