Yoenis Cespedes hits first DR home run

After all the Victor Martinez discussions yesterday, here's a tangentially related video of Yoenis Cespedes hitting his first home run in the Dominican Republic's winter league action.

However, before that Cespedes was struggling a bit. He is now 3-for-23 (.130) with no walks and six strikeouts, Baseball America reports.The home run came on a 3-2 count when the Houston Astros' Rhiner Cruz threw a 97 mph fastball.

Enjoy the video ... after the jump.
