Toronto Blue Jays' Melky Cabrera breaks windshield with Fenway homer (Video)

Melky Cabrera of the Toronto Blue jays had a big night Monday in a 14-1 rout of the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, belting two home runs and driving in five runs.

His second home run was a three-run bomb off Red Sox left-hander Felix Doubront over the Green Monster in left field and out of the park, giving Toronto a 9-0 lead.

In the video above, a fan with sunglasses on his head reacts well after the ball left the park, at about the 10-second mark of the clip.

Apparently he saw what another fan captured on camera and sent out via Twitter:

With the win, the Blue Jays climbed to within 2 ½ games of the idle Baltimore Orioles in the American League East and kept their hold on the second AL wild card spot.

Cabrera is now hitting .313/.362/.487 with 14 homers and 58 RBI. The five RBI Monday gives Cabrera an even 500 for his career.

It is Cabrera’s third career two-homer game.

His first came as a member of the New York Yankees, when he went deep off Brett Anderson and Dan Giese of the Oakland Athletics on April 22, 2009. His second homer was a two-run walkoff shot in the 14th inning of the Yankees’ 9-7 win.

He turned the trick again on July 3, 2011, at Coors Field in Denver, taking Jason Hammel of the Colorado Rockies deep twice in a 16-8 win for the Kansas City Royals.

The five RBI tied a career high Cabrera had previously reached four times, in 2006, 2007 and twice in 2011.
