Lindor’s Three-Homer Game Lifts Mets Past Yankees

Jonathan Grant | September 13th, 2021

The Subway Series is always an interesting one, but it isn’t usually such a high-stakes occasion as it is in 2021. That’s because both the New York Mets and the Yankees are in fights for their postseason lives. That made Francisco Lindor’s three-homer showing all the more important on Sunday night.

His first home run put his team up by two in the second inning while his second did the same in the sixth. But Giancarlo Stanton hit one of his own in the seventh to tie the game, forcing Lindor to once again pull out some heroics. Despite a horrible season by his standards, he’s hitting just .227 thus far, Lindor smashed a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth, and that proved to be the winning blow as the Mets held on to win 8-7. They clawed back to .500 as a result and remain five behind the Atlanta Braves in the NL East. Perhaps more crucially, though, they knocked the Yankees out of the AL Wild Card spots by winning the game and series. As that race currently sits, the Blue Jays would be hosting the Red Sox while the Yankees are a game out of it.
