American League Leasts

After seven years in the MLB and only two seasons where he hit over 20 home runs Edwin Encarnacion has clubbed 38 circuit clouts this season. Jose Bautista was of similar production before his explosive 2010 season. The batting tips that have made their power skyrocket seem to have made their way around the Blue Jays clubhouse; the squad is fourth in homers trailing the Yankees, White Sox, and Orioles.

A kid sitting near a Terry Francona doppelganger made a catch of a foul ball using his ungainly large glove.

Perhaps having someone who resembled his father figure nearby inspired Dustin Pedroia. The second baseman knocked a solo shot into the parking lot in the eighth, pulling his team within two runs. But Colby Rasmus powered a two-run shot in the top of the next frame, rendering useless Mauro Gomez’s two-run homer in the ninth.
