New York Mets’ Yoenis Cespedes Smacks First Home Run Of The Season (Video)

Stymied by the Philadelphia Phillies all afternoon, Yoenis Cespedes helps the New York Mets lineup bust out of it in a major way.

It’s Groundhog Day for Matt Harvey each and every time he takes the mound.

Whether he struggles a bit to find his way, or pitches a flat-out gem, his offense, the New York Mets lineup, simply cannot find a way to put runners across the plate.

His run-support has been historically bad during his young career.


Today, as the Amazins’ host the Philadelphia Phillies in the rubber-game of a three-game set at Citi Field, as soon as Harvey was lifted by manager Terry Collins, the lineup responded as usual.

It responded in the form of Yoenis Cespedes who battled through an 11-pitch at-bat to smack his first home run of the season off Phils starter Jeremy Hellickson:

Yo knows baseball. #cespedes #Mets
