Lindor homers, Mets beat Yankees

Lindor homers, Mets beat Yankees

Francisco Lindor broke the tie in the eighth inning with his third home run of the game that fell into the right-field bleachers after a brush with rival outfielder Giancarlo Santanton and the Mets defeated the Yankees 8-7 on Sunday, both City clubs. from New York.
The meeting was the last of the Subway Series between the two teams and almost ended in a pitched brawl.
The Puerto Rican hit a three-run homer, hitting left, off a nearly straight pitch by rookie Clarke Schmidt in the second inning; He hit a solo home run in the sixth hitting right off a low pitch by Wandy Peralta and hitting a left-hitting home run to Chad Green (7-7) that broke the tie 7-7.
It was the first time Lindor had hit three home runs in a game after failing to show great effectiveness for most of his first season with the Mets.
As he turned the bases with his second home run, Lindor put a hand in front of his mouth, turned to the Yankees and pretended to whistle.
This was in response to the Mets’ belief that the Yankees had been whistling Saturday to warn their hitters about the type of pitch Taijuan Walker would throw at them.
The dislike intensified when Stanton tied the score with a two-run homer in the seventh connected to left-hander Brad Hand.
After jogging, Stanton started walking as he turned around to second, showed his back to third and yelled at shortstop.
Lindor and second baseman Javier Baez waved Stanton toward them, and when Stanton reached the plate, players from both dugouts invaded the field.
The bullpens were also emptied. Brett Gardner gave the Mets a thumbs down twice. The next pitch had a delay of almost four minutes.
Seth Lugo (4-2) worked the eighth inning and Edwin Díaz made his 29th save in 35 chances. (AP)
