BOSTON - Edwin Encarnacion’s travelling long-ball show continued to amaze Wednesday evening as Fenway Park’s green monster once again proved about as intimidating as the Cookie Monster.

For the second game in a row, Encarnacion hoisted two home runs over the 37-foot left field wall to set the tone for the Blue Jays’ 6-4 victory over the struggling World Series champion Red Sox. With the victory, Toronto moved into second place in the American League East standings, just .001 percentage point behind the New York Yankees.

Encarnacion’s three-RBI evening against Boston starter and loser Clay Buchholz helped Drew Hutchison to level his personal record at 3-3 for the season and send the Red Sox to their sixth consecutive defeat.
