VIDEO: Edwin Encarnación hits jaw-dropping inside-the-park home run against the Angels

LOS ANGELES - Edwin Encarnación hit an inside-the-park home run against the Angels, and it was a jaw-dropping moment for the team and fans watching from home.

If it happened at Progressive Field, the entire city would erupt in a cheering chant and expect the 35-year-old player to do his signature parrot walk home run trot. But there was no time for that, as he joined his teammates in the dugout for a standing ovation and high fives all around.

The last time Encarnación had an inside-the-park home run was in 2007. And of course, Tom Hamilton's play-by-play coupled with Encarnación's run of the bases made the moment that much better.

Encarnación's inside-the-park home run brought back memories for Tyler Wesley Naquin, who was the last player to hit an inside-the-park home run for the Indians.

The Indians went on to dominate the Angels, 6-0.
