Edwin Encarnacion delivered a go-ahead RBI single in Friday's 3-2 win over the Indians.
With the game tied in the bottom of the seventh inning, the Indians intentionally walked Jose Bautista to load the bases, but Encarnacion made them pay by lining a single to center field to put the Jays in front. The 31-year-old is hitting just .246/.329/.338 through 17 games this season and has yet to hit his first home run, but there's every reason to believe that he's going to be fine.

Encarnacion was impressive this spring, erasing any concerns about lingering wrist problems by hitting .328 with three homers and six doubles in 64 at-bats.

Edwin Encarnacion said he feels "ready and ready to go" this spring after undergoing wrist surgery at the end of last season.
"It took almost seven weeks to be 100 percent," Encarnacion said. "I didn't want to hurry my plan to recover, so I took my time to make sure it would be ready." The first baseman received a clean bill of health from the doctors, and he'll be without restriction this spring.
