One day spent as the defensive toast of baseball wasn’t enough for Yoenis Cespedes.

The A’s left fielder was at it again Wednesday, unleashing another remarkable throw that had the ballpark buzzing in Oakland’s 7-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. The win helped the A’s avoid a three-game sweep and close their nine-game road trip on a high note.

Once again, Cespedes misplayed a ball in the left field corner. Once again he redeemed himself by cutting down another base runner.

This time he nailed the lumbering Albert Pujols, who unwisely tried to turn a double into a triple in the sixth inning. Cespedes let the ball carom and bounce away from him before he rifled a throw on the fly -- from the warning track -- to get Pujols by a wide margin at third.

It wasn’t as jaw-dropping as his 300-plus foot throw to home plate Tuesday to nail Howie Kendrick, but what play will be?

In actuality, Cespedes’ throw Wednesday wasn’t even the best play of the game turned in by an outfielder. His teammate in center, Coco Crisp, made a leaping catch in the second to steal a home run from Josh Hamilton. That came after Cespedes himself was robbed of extra bases in the first by Mike Trout’s leaping grab.

Cespedes’ throw was only part of his terrific all-around game. He singled home the A’s first run in the third off Jered Weaver (7-5). He led off the sixth with a double and scored on Jed Lowrie’s sacrifice fly to break a 1-1 tie. Then he delivered another run-scoring single in ninth-inning garbage time to cap his three-hit night.

Cespedes enjoyed a 15-for-41 road trip (.366), a well-timed hot streak given that Josh Donaldson’s bat is on ice and Brandon Moss cooled off during the Angels series.
