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.
