TORONTO (AP) -- Edwin Encarnacion hit two home runs, Yunel Escobar also went deep and the Toronto Blue Jays used an eight-run third inning to beat the Cleveland Indians 11-9 on Saturday.
Encarnacion and Escobar both hit two-run shots in Toronto's highest-scoring inning of the season. The Blue Jays had eight hits in the inning, six of them for extra bases.
Shelley Duncan, Michael Brantley and Casey Kotchman homered for the Indians. Down 10-2 early, Cleveland made it close with a five-run eighth before right fielder Jose Bautista made a nice catch with two on to end the inning.
Encarnacion's second homer was a 448-foot solo drive to left-center off Jeremy Accardo in the fifth, a drive that landed in the third-deck restaurant. The home runs were the 24th and 25th of the season for Encarnacion, who signed a three-year, 29 million contract extension over the All-Star break. It was his first multihomer game of the season and the eighth of his career.
