A’s Cespedes Has A Shot At A Post Season Legacy

Athletics_Yoenis_Céspedes_2013It’s way too early to know if there is a new Mr. October on Oakland’s horizon, but it’s at least worth keeping an eye on the A’s Yoenis Cespedes this month.

In Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers, the A’s left fielder shrugged off the effects of a sore right shoulder to hit a triple and a two-run homer, producing the only runs the A’s scored in a 3-2 loss.

He came back with two singles in Game 2, the second of which touched off the winning rally that culminated with Cespedes scoring from third base on Stephen Vogt’s bases-loaded single in the ninth inning for a 1-0 win.
