Understatement: Josh Donaldson was effective in the Blue Jays‘ 9-6 win over the Twins on Sunday (box score). In fact, Donaldson on Sunday tallied the first three-homer game of his career. In the second inning, he hit a solo homer off Kyle Gibson. In the seventh he hit a go-ahead, two-run blast off Pat Light, and in the eighth he crushed a solo shot to dead center off Alex Wimmers. Following that third homer of the day (the reigning AL MVP’s 33rd of 2016), Jays partisans at the Rogers Centre bestowed upon Donaldson a very Canadian gesture of sports appreciation. Watch as lids take to wing …

Excelsior! Hats! Hats for the hat trick! Hats abound! Canada!

And obviously, to the victor goes the spoils …

The Man Without No Hats is now batting a robust .294/.407/.578, so repeat AL MVP laurels certainly seem plausible.
