Video: Yoenis Cespedes forgets count, strikes out looking

It's bad enough to strike out, but it's even worse to strike out when you lose track of the pitch count.

Oakland Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes can certainly testify to this after going down looking in the sixth inning of Friday's game in Toronto.

As you can see, home plate umpire Tim McClelland rings up Cespedes on a borderline pitch, however, Cespedes appears to have no clue he has just fell victim to a strikeout, and proceeds to step away from the batter's box to prepare himself for the next pitch.

Eventually, Cespedes gets the message that he has been retired, and walks back to the dugout in disbelief.
