Edwin Encarnacion just hit an inside-the-park home run in the year 2018

New, comments

The 35-year-old designated hitter tore around the bases in 18.71 seconds, according to a rough measurement known as my phone’s stopwatch.

Believe it or not, this isn’t a joke. Edwin Encarnacion broke open the scoring in tonight’s Indians-Angels game with DANGED INSIDE THE PARK HOME RUN.

Granted, it happened because Justin Upton forgot to baseball in the middle of a play, but still. Oh. My. God.

And here’s Tom’s call because you know you want it:

The Indians have a history of tormenting the Upton family. If you remember, Tyler Naquin’s inside-the-parker in 2016 came when Melvin Upton Jr. fell down in the outfield. You may also remember that the Indians have a long history of traumatizing Kate Upton’s husband.
