Don’t make Cespedes angry. You wouldn’t like him when he’s angry

Mat Latos was dealing. The Red Sox bats were dead and off the board until the 7th. With 2 outs in the 8th inning, Reds up 2-1 and a runner on base, Jonathan Broxton threw a pitch up and in on Yoenis Cespedes.

It was a brush back pitch, trying to get him on his heels.

Cespedes came up with the best solution: Park a go ahead homer into center field and make a loser out of the Reds, pushing them 2 1/2 games out of a playoff spot and just a game over .500.

If the defending World Champs are going to be reduced to spoiler status, they might as well take a few bullpens down for the count and make Cespedes angry.

It is more fun that way.

Time to update the Dodged Bullet/Teeth Grinder tally.
