Edwin Encarnacion’s fifth deck smash at Rogers Centre

During Tuesday's Red Sox-Blue Jays game, Toronto first baseman Edwin Encarnacion hit a pair of two-run homers in the 9-7 Blue Jays victory. While neither of Encarnacion's homers were the longest of the night (that honor went to Mike Carp's blast off the facade in right center field), E5's first homer of the evening off of Jon Lester in the fifth inning was a towering, majestic blast that hugged the foul pole and ended up landing five rows deep in the fifth deck.

This moonshot "only" traveled 427 feet, just three feet longer than his second homer of the game in the seventh inning, but good for his longest homer of the season. Encarnacion's nine homers this season are averaging a hair under 400 feet this year, slightly above the AL average but fourth on the Blue Jays (among all hitters with at least three homers) behind Colby Rasmus, JP Arencibia, and Jose Bautista.
