NEW YORK — Francisco Lindor talked a serious talk on Sunday night, so much so that one of his opponents, while jogging the bases after a home run, got into a shouting match with the New York Mets shortstop before crossing home plate.
Just one inning later, Lindor backed his boasts up by walking the walk…for a third time.
Lindor cracked a go-ahead solo home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to cap a three-homer night, lifting the Mets to a 7-6 victory over the New York Yankees to take the rubber game of the Subway Series played at Citi Field. Seth Lugo pitched a perfect eighth inning with two strikeouts to earn the win while Edwin Díaz escaped a jam with runners on second and third to earn his 29th save.
