News: Cespedes went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a stolen base, one run scored, and one RBI in Tuesday's win over the Astros. Impact: Cespedes doubled in each of his first two plate appearances, and stole his third base of the season in the fourth inning, but it was his game-tying two-out RBI single in the ninth inning that made the difference. He wasted no time, swinging at the first pitch he saw, blooping it into shallow right field to tie the game up at 4-4. He'd later come around to score on Josh Donaldson's two-run double. The 28-year-old is really swinging a hot bat since the break, batting .357 over 44 plate appearances with three home runs, 11 RBI, and two stolen bases.(RotoWire, )
