Mets’ Francisco Lindeau’s three home runs seem to be enough to qualify for a memorable Subway Series match, including eight Gore headshots.
But then everyone was talking about whistling.
Lindor whistled around the base after hitting his second home run in the sixth inning, alluding to the Yankees whistling on Saturday to inform him of the pitch Mets was throwing. ..
“I’m not 100 percent, so I can’t blame them for whistling,” Lindeau told reporters after the match. “But I knew what I heard and it felt like something unusual was happening.”
The Yankees Giancarlo Stanton drew the game 6-6 and hit his own home run in 7th place. When he made his second round, he almost stopped and plunged his chin into Lindo, who was playing shortstop. This time, both benches were cleared and even the rescue team faithfully emerged from the bullpen. There was a lot of milling and words were exchanged, but the problem did not escalate into a full-blown brawl.
After the game, Stanton said he was prompted to say something by Lindeau’s own vocal home run trot.
Regarding the pitch tipping accusation, Yankee manager Aaron Boone said: I’m not doing anything. “
About Flaca on Sunday night, he said, “Boys will be boys, and that’s about it.”
Mets coach Luis Rojas didn’t want part of the debate. “I’m not going to talk about what happened,” he said.
But the last laugh went to Mets, but when Lindo hit his third Homer at night in the 8th inning. It gave his team a 7-6 win over the Yankees and two wins in three series.
This was Lindeau’s first three-homer game, which struggled on the plate this year, and was the first player to achieve this feat in the Subway Series games.
New York fans are known for praising passionate players rather than just doing well. Arriving in an off-season trade, Lindo was asked if the confrontation with rival Yankees made him a true New Yorker, but he doesn’t believe he reached that position.
“No accent yet” He said with a smile..
However, Lindeau’s ferociousness may help reassure Mets fans who have been distressed by several players who offer thumbs-down gestures to their fans earlier this month after being booed.
Weekend matches were especially charged as the Yankees were at the height of the wildcard race between the Red Sox and the Blue Jays, and Mets hung in the suburbs of the National League playoffs photo. The drama was amplified as the series coincided with the 20th anniversary of the attack on September 11. The team symbolically took the field together on Saturday. By Sunday, it was a business as usual among rivals.
