Phillies Hammered By Jays in Slugfest
Edwin Encarnacion hit two of Toronto’s five home runs and the Blue Jays won their eighth consecutive game over Philadelphia, beating the Phillies 12-6 on Thursday night.
Juan Francisco, Adam Lind and Colby Rasmus also went deep to help Toronto extend its winning streak to a season-best five games. Encarnacion hit a leadoff shot in the second inning against A.J. Burnett and added a two-run drive off Luis Garcia in the seventh for his 12th career multihomer game.
Francisco followed Encarnacion’s second home run with a shot to center field, his second in two days, as the Blue Jays went back-to-back for the first time this season.
