Indians' Edwin Encarnacion: Beats Twins with five RBI

Encarnacion went 3-for-4 with two home runs and all five of the team's RBI in Sunday's victory over Minnesota.

The surging power hitter blasted a solo shot in the fourth inning off Kyle Gibson and tagged the pitcher again with a two-run blast in the sixth. Encarnacion added an RBI single and sac fly to bump his season total to 36 RBI. The veteran was hitting just .198 on May 15, but he left Minneapolis with a .261 average, 16 homers and .496 slugging percentage.
