Watch Yoenis Cespedes go from near HBP to game-winning homer

Cespedes almost took a fastball to the chin, and responded with a blast to center.

Yoenis Cespedes hit the game-winning home run for the Red Sox on Tuesday night against the Reds, but not before closer Jonathan Broxton threw one under his chin on the previous pitch.

Cespedes crushed that pitch, too, smashing it 435 feet for his longest blast of the 19 he's hit in 2014. Isn't it lovely seeing the Red Sox find someone else who has power to all fields? Or, you know, power in general, given the way much of this season has gone?

Get moving on that extension if you can, Sox, before Cespedes gets any more expensive.
