NEW YORK — Robinson Cano certainly could hear the whispers around Citi Field. Everyone else could: At 36, stuck in a season-long slump, was this eight-time All-Star all done?
He didn’t think so.
“One day it’s going to turn around,” Cano kept telling himself.
It happened Tuesday night, when Cano hit three home runs in a game for the first time in his 15-year career, powering Jason Vargas and the New York Mets over the San Diego Padres 5-2.
Cano drove in all five runs and went 4-for-4, punctuating his performance with a pair of second-deck shots.
The second baseman began the day batting just .243 with six homers in his first season with the Mets. Yet before the game, manager Mickey Callaway expressed confidence that Cano would produce, putting him in the category of “Hall of Fame hitters.”
Cano’s performance Tuesday was just the third three-homer game by a Mets player at home. Lucas Duda and Kirk Nieuwenhuis both did it in July 2015.

Acquired with closer Edwin Diaz from the Mariners in the offseason, Cano came with five years and $120 million left on his contract. Despite his struggles, Callaway said the Mets saw good t

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson was “trusting the wrong people,” his attorney said, and is deeply in debt after making nearly $100 million in his career.
Peterson is being sued for failing to pay back a $5.2 million loan, The Athletic reported.
According to The Athletic, Peterson owes, after interest and legal fees, $6.6 million to DeAngelo Vehicle Sales, who claimed he had defaulted on his loan in the lawsuit that was filed in New York. Peterson had borrowed money from the lending company to pay off other creditors. He also must pay a combined $3 million to two other creditors.
“The truth behind Adrian Peterson’s current financial situation is more than is being reported at this time,” Peterson’s attorney Chase Carlson said Tuesday in a sta
