Encarnacion has 2 HRs, Blue Jays top Indians 4-2
Question of the Day
“He’s one of the top sluggers in the game,” Gibbons said.
Encarnacion finished 3 for 4, adding a double in the third. His only out was a hard liner straight at third baseman Carlos Santana to open the seventh.
Encarnacion had just two home runs through April 30, but has hit six since. He’s doubled his RBI total with 15 so far in May, and 10 of his 14 hits this month have been for extra bases.
“I feel great at the plate the last couple of weeks,” Encarnacion said. “I’m very happy and very proud because I know when I feel like that I can help my team win a lot of games.”
Gibbons wasn’t too moved about his minor milestone.
“In managerial history, I don’t know if that means a lot,” he said of his 400 wins. “It’s a nice round number.”
Blue Jays left-hander J.A. Happ allowed one run and six hits in a season-high six innings. Happ (2-1) walked two and struck out four.
“He stepped up,” Gibbons said. “That was big for him, it really was.”
Brett Cecil pitched the seventh, Steve Delabar got two outs in the eighth and Aaron Loup got the third. Casey Janssen finished for his second save in two chances.
One night after setting season-highs with 15 runs and 22 hits, Cleveland struggled to get anything going offensively. Yan Gomes grounded into a double play with men at first and second in the second, and the Indians twice grounded into fielder’s choices with two on in the fourth.
