If Jason Leblebijian keeps this up, his tongue-twisting surname will one day grace the back of a Major League uniform.
The Toronto infielder homered twice during his second four-hit game of the season and drove in four runs as Triple-A Buffalo fell to Charlotte, 9-7, on Monday.

Leblebijian put the Bisons on the board in the second inning when he smoked a 1-1 offering from Will Lamb over the fence in left-center field. The 26-year-old belted his second solo shot to left off Lamb in the fourth to tie the score, 3-3.
The Bradley University product narrowly missed out on the hat trick in the seventh when he tattooed the first pitch from Kelvis Valerio (1-0) off the center-field wall for a two-run double. The native of Arlington Heights, Illinois also lined a single to center with two outs in the ninth.
Gameday box score
In 44 games this season, Leblebijian has produced a .305/.382/.539 slash line with seven homers and 33 RBIs. His .920 OPS is fourth-best in the International League.
Leblebijian's strong start this year comes on the heels of a breakout 2016 campaign that saw the 26-year-old post a .294/.361/.436 slash line with 13 homers and 55 RBIs in 127 games between Class A Advanced Dunedin and Double-A New Hampshire.
Christian Lopes hit his second homer of the season and Dwight Smith Jr. added an RBI double for the Bisons.
After Nicky Delmonico went deep in the ninth for the Knights, Cody Asche ended the game with a three-run pinch-hit homer.
