The solo blast also marked his first home run in a Toronto uniform.As you might imagine, Cabrera was pretty excited about the feat. The blast essentially removed a huge proverbial monkey off of his back.

Eventually, Cabrera's teammates break their silence and congratulate him like we are all accustomed to seeing.But it sure was fun while it lasted.Via MLB.com
