That's more like it, Joey.

Jose Bautista's early-season struggles have been well-chronicled, but it all came together - for one at-bat, at least - on Wednesday night. The Toronto Blue Jays star parked Danny Salazar's first-inning pitch some 391 feet into left field on a frozen rope for a three-run shot that put Toronto up 3-2.

It was Bautista's third homer of the season, but just the first one he's hit at his longtime home park of Rogers Centre since last year's American League wild-card game. Bautista's hit 137 of his 311 career homers in the building formerly known as SkyDome.

The six-time All-Star is in the midst of a career-worst campaign; he came into the game with an OPS of .553 and owns just seven extra-base hits.

Bautista's blast only temporarily gave the Blue Jays a lead, however, as the visitors from Cleveland struck back with a five-run third inning to take a 7-3 lead.
