In his eighth game as a member of the Red Sox, Yoenis Cespedes went yard. It was an important home run, too, as his three-run, eighth-inning blast off of Angels reliever Joe Smith broke a 0-0 tie. The Red Sox would go on to win by a 3-1 margin.
Watch Cespedes go deep:
Totaling his performance with the Athletics and the Red Sox this season, Cespedes has 18 home runs, 72 RBI, and a .256/.302/.462 slash line. The Red Sox acquired Cespedes at the trade deadline in the trade that sent starter Jon Lester and outfielder Jonny Gomes to the Athletics.
