2. Edwin’s single in the eighth
After Francisco Lindor drew a walk and Austin Jackson recorded a single in the eighth inning, Edwin Encarnacion stepped up to the plate with just one out.
The hit scored Lindor and tied the game, 4-4. Encarnacion and Jackson would both advance on the throw.
While the walk-off was truly a sight to see, it never would have happened without Encarnacion’s eighth inning prowess.
