Yoenis Cespedes leaves Game 4 with a sore left shoulder
Things have gone so well for the Mets in the National League Championship Series, but they were thrown for a loop when Yoenis Cespedes exited Game 4 in the second inning with a sore left shoulder.
Juan Lagares replaced Cespedes in center field.
Cespedes drew a key walk to prolong the first inning, allowing Lucas Duda to bat and hit a three-run home run. He also struck out in the second inning.
Terry Collins said mid-game Cespedes was having difficulty lifting his shoulder, which led to his removal from the game.
But he said after the game Cespedes received a cortisone injection in his shoulder, and is expected to be fine by the time the World Series begins on October 27.
