Mets outfielder Young hits 2 home runs in rehab game with Las Vegas

If this game is any indication, Chris Young appears ready to rejoin the New York Mets.

The outfielder, playing today in his first rehabilitation game with Triple-A Las Vegas, belted a pair of home runs to help the 51s beat host Fresno, 10-4.

Young started the scoring in the first inning with a leadoff home run, finishing a perfect 5 for 5 with four runs scored and five RBIs.

Young, who is sidelined with a quadriceps injury, is eligible to come off the disabled list next week.

Eric Campbell extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a single in the eighth inning to help the 51s score five runs in the frame to secure the win. Campbell also scored twice, and catcher Taylor Teagarden added a two-hit performance.

Las Vegas (8-3) won for the second straight day in the four-game series at Fresno. The series concluded at 7:05 p.m. Monday.
