Yoenis Cespedes' homer got directly into the trash can... Literally

That's accuracy!

The Mets were dealt a tough loss on Saturday when the Padres beat them, 12-2, but those two runs came in a fascinating fashion. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Yoenis Cespedes was involved.

In the top of the sixth inning with a runner on, Cespedes put forth a mighty swing on a pitch from Padres starter Joey Lucchesi:

Just like that, Lucchesi's shutout was gone, as Cespedes' homer sailed over the wall in left-center field ...

 

.. directly into a garbage can.

We knew that Cespedes had a great golf game, but this? This is crazy. Statcast measured the shot at 418 feet with a 30-degree launch angle -- apparently the perfect arc needed for this hole-in-one. Maybe we should call it a Yo-in-one.

Just another ridiculous day in the life of Cespedes.
