Anthony Gruppuso/USA TODAY Sports

New York Mets star Yoenis Cespedes didn’t start for the Mets tonight versus the Cincinnati Reds as the team started Michael Conforto in left, Juan Lagares in center, and Curtis Granderson in right,

Cespedes, who entered the night without appearing in a game since April 22nd due to a leg injury, was called on by manager Terry Collins to deliver in a big situation, and he certainly did.

Cespedes hit a three-run, pinch-hit home run in the 7th inning that traveled 369 feet to left off of Brandon Finnegan for his first career pinch-hit home run in 10 at-bats:

The 30-year-old Cespedes is expected to be in Collins’ lineup tomorrow versus the Reds. He is now hitting .300/.373/.683 with 6 home runs and 17 runs batted in.
