Edwin Encarnacion is a popular man today. He hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the 11th inning, to lift the Jays to a 5-2 win over Baltimore, sending Toronto on to face Texas in the American League Division Series. The Jays dugout emptied after Encarnacion’s home run, and the players celebrated on the field for several minutes.
Fun fact: The only other time a Blue Jay player hit a walkoff playoff-clinching home run was at the 1993 World Series. Carter hit a walk off home home run that year, as the Blue jays won the World series. You can check out BOTH home runs below!
