You're playing in the Little League World Series, you're on the cusp of an upset and you just capped your team's emphatic win with a sixth-inning solo shot. What do you do?

If you're Canadian Little Leaguer Loreto Siniscalchi, you emulate one of your favorite Major Leaguers:

For any Blue Jays fans, that should look awfully familiar:

Canada won, 10-4, in the opening round of the Little League World Series on Friday, handing Japan its first opening-round loss in 50 years. The team from Vancouver couldn't have pulled off the upset without some next-level performances, and they definitely got one from Sinisalchi. He started the game on the mound, pitched 5 2/3 innings while striking out 13, and gave himself an extra cushion with the aforementioned home run. That's an Edwing-worthy performance if there ever was one.
