Encarnacion belts two homers in same inning, including grand slam (VIDEO)

Edwin Encarncaion had a game he will never forget on Friday night and made Toronto Blue Jays history when the All-Star became only the second player in their almost 37 year existence to hit two home runs in the same inning. 

Joe Carter was the first Jay to turn the trick in their regular season finale against the Baltimore Orioles back on October 3, 1993.

Encarnacion — the Jays' designated hitter — started off his inning with a solo homer leading off against Astros reliever Paul Clemens. Eight batters and three runs later, he found himself at the plate again, this time with the bases loaded, and he connected for a grand slam off Hector Ambriz. 

Encarnacion slowly chicken-winged it around the bases on his second blast.

The home runs were No. 27 and 28 on the season for Encarnacion as the Jays went on to a 12-6 victory.
