BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Edwin Encarnacion appears to be back in Major League form, slugging a grand slam Tuesday night in a rehab assignment with the Bisons, leading Buffalo to a 7-5 win over Norfolk.
The Blue Jays All-Star went 1-for-4 in the game, and is expected to be in the lineup again on Wednesday.
The win was Buffalo’s 18th in the last 23 games, vaulting the Bisons back into the playoff race. The Herd stands just 2.5 games out of a wildcard spot at the moment, with three weeks left in the regular season.
Buffalo will take on Norfolk again Wednesday night at 7:05pm.
