Yoenis Cespedes is 2-for-2 this week — in the field.

For the second straight night, he made an unbelievable play to gun down a baserunner. This time, the Oakland Athletics’ left fielder caught Albert Pujols of the Angels as he tried to stretch a double into a triple. Cespedes got his league-leading ninth outfield assist on the throw to third baseman Josh Donaldson.

(Technically, Cespedes’ throw to the plate, nabbing Howie Kendrick, on Tuesday was more incredible. Watch it again and appreciate it.)
