Yoenis Céspedes hit three home runs and the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 14-4 on Tuesday.
The Cuban flew the fence in the first entrance by the central with two runners in base, solitary in the fourth by the left garden and in the fifth also without people on board by the left, a kilometer bomb. It was the second game of three home runs for Cespedes in the uniform of the Mets, something unheard of for the franchise.
In the seventh, Céspedes hit another extra base: a double by the center. And in the eighth it was finally dominated after having collected 14 bases throughout the match.
Lucas Duda, meanwhile, gave two home runs for the Mets, while Asdrubal Cabrera and Travis d’Arnaud also fought the New York fence at the cannonball festival.
Celebration of the Tribe
In Cleveland, the Indians celebrated their first game of the season at home (their first since Game 7 of the World Series) with a 2-1 win, leaving the White Sox in the tenth inning. Michael Brantley doubled the left to score Francisco Lindor.
