Edwin Encarnacion hits shocking inside the park home run

Edwin Encarnacion hits shocking inside the park home run”

Inside-the-park homers are impressive no matter who hits them but it's especially impressive for Encarnacion, who at 35 is no longer mobile enough to play the field.

Angels left fielder Justin Upton reacted slowly, likely thinking the ball was foul. Upton must have assumed the ball was foul, because he didn't chase after it as it bounded away from him. Just another reason this was one unusual trip around the diamond.

This was Encarnacion's second career inside-the-parker; his first came on August 31, 2007, when he was with the Reds, against the Cardinals in St. Louis.

Encarnacion entered the night hitting.333/.455/1.000 with a pair of home runs. The first one came on August 31, 2007, while Encarnacion was a member of the Cincinnati Reds. Shortstop Francisco Lindor drew a walk and a throwing error from catcher Martin Maldonado allowed Zimmer to score the unearned run.

Cleveland's Edwin Encarnacion, Yonder Alonso and Tyler Naquin all connected off right-hander JC Ramirez (0-1) to spoil the Angels' home opener. Naquin's blast brought around right fielder Lonnie Chisenhall, who singled with one out earlier in the inning. Brandon Guyer added an RBI double in the eighth. Clevinger registered five strikeouts and found the strike zone with 65 of his 97 pitches against the team that traded him to the Indians in 2014.

Ramirez lasted just 4 2/3 innings and gave up five runs (four earned) on five hits and two walks.
