Blue Jays’ Edwin Encarnacion Blasts 3 Homers, Extends Hit Streak To 24 (Video)


The Toronto Blue Jays are an offensive machine, and the latest display of their power was provided by designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion.

He blasted three home runs and tallied nine RBI in a 15-1 win over the Detroit Tigers on Saturday afternoon. Encarnacion’s first homer, a three-run shot to left field, extended his hit streak to 24 games. It’s the longest hit streak for a Blue Jays player since Scott Rolen’s 25-game run in 2009.
