OAKLAND – A’s center fielder Yoenis Cespedes left Monday night’s game before the top of the fifth with a stomach illness, according to the team.

Cespedes homered in the third inning, the front of back-to-back long balls from him and Brandon Moss that staked the A’s to a 4-1 lead over the Texas Rangers.

Before the fifth, Cespedes trotted out to his position but then retreated to the dugout before the inning began. Moss shifted from right to center and Michael Taylor entered in right field.
