Blue Jays overcome eight-run deficit, beat Reds 14-9

CINCINNATI (AP) - Edwin Encarnacion hit two three-run homers Friday night, and the Toronto Blue Jays pulled off the second-biggest comeback in franchise history, rallying from an early eight-run deficit to a 14-9 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.
    
Toronto hit four homers during its comeback, including the two by the major leagues' home run leader. Encarnacion started the comeback by connecting in the third inning off Mat Latos and finished it with his 23rd homer off Sam LeCure during a five-run ninth inning.
    
Brett Lawrie and Juan Francisco also homered for Toronto, which piled up 16 hits and nine walks.
    
The eight-run deficit was the second-biggest overcome in franchise history. Toronto overcame a 10-run deficit to beat Boston 13-11 in 12 innings in 1989.
